DESCRIPTION:
(from Spike TV's press release, September 2013) Spike TV has optioned a limited event series script that takes an illuminating, new look at the extraordinary story of Tutankhamun, based on recently discovered historical evidence. Tutankhamun (King Tut, 1333 to 1323 BC) was the youngest Pharaoh to rule Ancient Egypt. "Tut" was brought to Spike TV by MUSE Entertainment ("The Kennedys," "Pillars of the Earth," "Last Templar") with Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas from Muse along with Greg Gugliotta ("The Fosters") as Executive Producers, Michael Vickerman ("Impact") as Writer/ Executive Producer, and Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige (Creators and Executive Producers, "The Fosters") as Writers. If greenlit, "Tut" will be a ground-breaking, six-part, action-packed series combining the drama of power, political backstabbing, war and murder. Based on historical fact from DNA evidence recently unearthed, this dramatic scripted series will capture King Tut's fascinating rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his untimely death.
