Inspired by Smallville and Batman Begins, The Knight is a reinterpretation of Batman more focusing about young Bruce Wayne's life before donning the identity of the Dark Knight. This series will tell of Bruce's life before Batman, but after multiple seasons we will see the Dark Knight in his prime and glory; the show will focus on a much younger Bruce as he battles adolescence, love, sadness, death, and justice. In definition, this is the evolution from Bruce Wayne to Batman.
The series will follow the same rule as Smallville; the "no tights rule" as it will play out Bruce will be the only hero as Batman hasn't even exist, yet the mythology will play on. The "weekly" villains will be normal people showing weird abilities because of a Wayne Enterprises' lab explosion, but there will be versions of Batman's future nemeses such as Joker, Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, and others, but like Bruce no costumes are allowed.
Bruce, Alfred, the Waynes, Lucius Fox, and Julie Madison will be comic book characters focus on the show as well there will be series-created characters such as Leo Foster (a Robin archetype), Jason Powers, Victor Powers, and Det. Megan Alder (a Jim Gordon archetype) as the cast. Each season will have 13 episodes in total.
