>Get ready to meet a brand-new Harley Quinn, puddin'!
>Former psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel, who was driven insane by the Joker and then became his long-suffering girlfriend and assistant, has grown tired of always being stuck in his shadow, so she's breaking loose — into her own animated DCU series.
>The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco voices the title role, with Bless This Mess's Lake Bell as her best pal Poison Ivy and Doom Patrol's Alan Tudyk as the Joker.
>"There have been several iterations of Harley over the years, obviously," says executive producer Patrick Schumacker. "We wanted to go back to her criminal roots and tell the story of her breaking up with the Joker and striking out on her own to become the criminal kingpin of Gotham City."
>That's a tall order in a town so out of control that even its legendary police commissioner, James Gordon (Christopher Meloni), has PTSD. ("Imagine you are the police commissioner of the most dangerous city in the world, and every day of your life seems like living the movie Seven over and over again," Schumacker says. "He is dark, to the point where Batman's like, 'Whoa, settle down, man. You're making me sad.'")
