Fox's Batman prequel series "Gotham" has emerged as the apparent favourite of the new Fall shows from a recent round of international buyers screenings.

Speaking with various acquisition heads at the previews of the new TV shows, THR was told "Gotham" appeared to have scored the highest marks thanks to built-in name recognition, a strong cast, beautiful production values and a "smart origins story".

Also scoring well with buyers were Disney's "How to Get Away With Murder" starring Viola Davis, M. Night Shyamalan's mystery thriller "Wayward Pines", Warners' Debra Messing-led comedy "The Mysteries of Laura" and the Kevin Williamson-produced thriller "Stalker".

Not scoring well? Sitcoms, most of which were dismissed aside from USA's escort drama "Satisfaction". »
