[show]The idea for this show came from the office of Jamie Kellner, who was head of programming at the WB, after he had called a meeting with the crew from Batman: The Animated Series. Kellner told them they were doing a great job on the series but it skews a bit old and the WB would really like to retrofit Batman to get more the kid demographic higher, to make sure the kids watch. The crew thought they would have to bring in another sidekick, but Kellner told them he wanted an all new show with a teenage Batman.
