Pennyworth Teaser Trailer: The Action-Packed Alfred TV Series You Always Wanted


I know it’s April Fool’s Day today but, believe it or not, this is a real teaser for a real TV show. And to be honest, it doesn’t look all that bad. Fox has already done a Batman prequel series without Batman in it, but Epix is taking things a step further by setting up a show that revolves around the early life of his trusty butler Alfred. What you might not know is that Alfred Pennyworth was a former badass British SAS soldier who helped form a security company with young billionaire Thomas Wayne. The show is created by Gotham producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon and it stars Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game) in the lead role. Pennyworth premieres sometime in June; check out the first teaser below and see what you think.
