About the Show

Birds of Prey is an American science fiction television series created by Laeta Kalogridis, loosely based on the Birds of Prey DC Comics series and set in New Gotham City, several years after it has been apparently abandoned by Batman. In his absence, Oracle and the Huntress have taken over his war on crime.

The two are joined by Dinah; Alfred Pennyworth, who serves Helena as she is heir to the Wayne estate; and Detective Jesse Reese, a police officer confronted with crimes and abilities he cannot explain.

The series aired in the USA on The WB from 9 October, 2002 to 19 February, 2003. There are 13 hour-long episodes in one season.

Birds of Prey aired in South Africa on M-Net from 20 February to 15 May, 2003, on Thursdays at 17h00. New episodes broadcast weekly.

Synopsis

Deep in the shadows of New Gotham City, restless souls prowl, unaware that justice stalks silently above them among the steely spires.

Legend tells of a caped crusader, Batman, guardian of New Gotham, and his one true love, Catwoman, the queen of the criminal underworld.

Their passion left behind something extraordinary, a daughter, Huntress. Half metahuman, she has taken up her father's mantel and under cover of the night, fights to protect the innocent and helpless.

Joining her in this struggle is Oracle, who was once Batman's protege, Batgirl. She was caught in the crossfire of the war between Batman and the Joker, now she fights crime a different way, a master of the cyber-realms and mentor and trainer to heroes.

Together, they have taken in a young runaway, Dinah, a metahuman herself with powers to open hidden doors to the mind, powers that she is only beginning to explore.

Together, these three are the protectors of New Gotham - the Birds of Prey.
