New Gotham's Only Hope
It begins with New Gotham in chaos. In one night, Catwoman is murdered and Batgirl falls in a rain of gunfire, victims of The Joker's wrath. With his true love dead, The Caped Crusader flees the city (leaving Gotham to the crooks and thieves, with no one to fill the crime-fighting void).
Batgirl, now confined to a wheelchair, redefines herself as "Oracle" (Dina Meyer), a master of cybernetics and weapons design. She takes under her wing the secret daughter of Batman and Catwoman, "Huntress" (Ashley Scott, Dark Angel), who is as fierce as she is beautiful. Powerful, haunting visions lead a third young woman, Dinah (Rachel Skarsten, Virginia's Run), to their secret Clock Tower lair.
The trio is complete. They are now the Birds of Prey, determined to battle crime in a New Gotham laced with bold new villains. They are New Gotham's last and only defense against the newest villians to threaten the city's safety.
Shemar Moore (The Brothers) and
Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks) Mia Sara (Ferris Bueller's Day Off) also star.
From executive producers Laeta Kalogridis (Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola, Birds of Prey is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions (the producers behind Smallville) and Warner Bros. Television, based on the popular DC Comic.
Birds of Prey debuted on Wednesday, October 9, 2002.
