Watch Birds of Prey
- 1 Season
Loosely based on the long running comic book series of the same name, Birds of Prey is set in New Gotham City shortly after its usual protector, Batman, vanishes mysteriously. Batman's protege, Barbara Gordon (Dina Meyer), previously fought crime under the name Batgirl until a bullet paralized her. Turning to her computer and weapons expertise, she continues her crusade against the forces of evil under the name Oracle. Helena Kyle (Ashley Scott) is the daughter of Batman and his one-time foe, Catwoman, and has inherited metahuman abilities. She teams up with Oracle, acting as her field agent and using the name Huntress. The two work as a team cleaning up the streets in Batman's absence, and along the way encounter a teenage runaway by the name of Dinah (Rachel Skarsten) who soon joins them making the trio into the Birds of Prey. Along the way they clash with villains from Batman's old rogues gallery, and are assisted by Alfred Pennyworth (Ian Abercrombie) and police detective James Reese (Shemar More) of the Gotham PD. The series was created by Laeta Kalogridis, and also features Mia Sara as Dr. Harleen Quinzel.
