Netflix Inc. has struck a deal with Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution to run the television series "Gotham" worldwide after its first season.

The highly anticipated show, which will start its initial season on Fox on Sept. 22, occurs in Gotham City and depicts an orphaned Bruce Wayne and future Commissioner James Gordon. Stars include Ben McKenzie and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution said that the deal is unique because it's licensed on a multi-territory basis. The company typically licenses programming country by country. Terms weren't disclosed.

Each season of "Gotham" will be available to Netflix members starting the following  year, once its initial broadcast is complete in each country.

Shares of Netflix were up $7.39,  1.5 percent, to $483.71 in early trading  Wednesday.
