Plot Synopsis

Narrated by Robert Wuhl, ICONS UNEARTHED: BATMAN is a documentary series that explores the "Batman" franchise, as cast, crew, and experts reveal never-before-heard stories about the Dark Knight. The series features interviews with Billy Dee Williams, Sean Young, Robert Wuhl, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Jeph Loeb, Denise Di Novi, Chuck Dixon, and Mark Canton. Episodes include:

"One of the Gargoyles Moved" (Wednesday, March 20, 2024 at 9pm): An unexpected champion vowed to bring back the dark knight to the screen, but it would take a visionary young director and a couple off the wall producers to get him there.

"My Smile is Just Skin Deep" (Wednesday, March 27, 2024 at 9pm): Production is off to a rocky start with an injured star, a troublesome vehicle, and an unyielding suit; maybe the producers and director can work out their differences to land the film.

"Things Change" (Wednesday, April 3, 2024 at 9pm): After the success of Batman 89, the studio is ready for round two, but their director is not; given free reign, Burton and his handpicked team go wild.

"Bat Nipples and Ice" (Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at 9pm): A fraught production drives away the star yet delivers the toy friendly Batman the studio wants; when the sequel goes over the top, the franchise hangs in the balance.

"I'm Not Wearing Hockey Pads" (Wednesday, April 17, 2024 at 9pm): To revive a dying franchise, the studio gives the key to the Batmobile to an indie director whose origin story and grounded aesthetic promise to resuscitate their hero.

"In Heath's Shadow" (Wednesday, April 24, 2024 at 9pm): On a mission to top his first outing, Nolan pushes his team harder than ever; when tragedy strikes, no one is prepared.
