News of a new action drama series which has been commissioned by Fox television is reported on Entertainment Weekly:
"Fox has given a series order to a hugely ambitious fantasy project set in ancient Egypt.
Titled Hieroglyph, the action-drama series “follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers.”
“We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on – no better place to set that than ancient Egypt,” said Fox’s chairman of entertainment Kevin Reilly.
Fox has ordered 13 episode of the drama, which is produced by Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope, along with Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim, Clash of the Titans), who wrote the pilot script. “Travis Beacham has an inventive mind, and he has wrapped this all together in this intoxicating new drama,” Reilly said."
