Jada Pinkett Smith is the latest celeb to join the ranks of TV stardom. This year, the actress will make her return to the small screen with Fox’s prequel drama to Batman, Gotham.

The series is based on the origin of the characters of Gotham City and follows Commissioner James Gordon in his rookie detective years as detective–played by Ben McKenzie–Bruce Wayne and the various villains they’ve encountered in the dark city. The actress/singer will star as Fish Mooney, a hotheaded nightclub owner and sadistic gangster boss that has the ability to see through everybody.

Besides her executive producer role for The Queen Latifah Show, this will be her first TV project since TNT’s Hawthorne.
