SPIKE TV GREENLIGHTS EPIC SIX-HOUR SCRIPTED EVENT SERIES BASED ON THE LEGENDARY EGYPTIAN PHARAOH

"Tut" Set To Begin Production This Fall In Morocco and Canada

Premieres On Spike In 2015

New York, NY, May 5, 2014 - Spike TV is bringing the astounding saga of one of history's most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun (King Tut), to television in a new landmark six-hour scripted event series.

"Tut" reveals, for the first time on television, the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh, one of the most renowned leaders in human history. This ambitious special-event series tells the story of Tut's rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. "Tut" opens up a fascinating window into a world filled with heart-breaking romance, epic battles, political backstabbing, conspiracy, jealousy, and even murder -- proving his world was not far removed from our own -- and that his reign as the youngest Egyptian king played out as a real-life drama for the ages.

This will be Spike TV's first scripted event series in eight years and is another step in the network's move to reaching a more gender-balanced audience.

"We are thrilled to join forces with MUSE Entertainment and this incredible writing team to bring the amazing story of one of history's legendary leaders to life," said Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV. "Tut is the perfect addition to our slate of distinctive originals that appeal to a broad audience."

"Tut" will be shot entirely on location in Morocco and Canada this fall and will debut on the network in 2015.

"Tut" will be produced for Spike TV by MUSE Entertainment ("The Kennedys," "Being Human," "Pillars of the Earth," "Bomb Girls") with Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas from Muse. The project is executive produced by Greg Gugliotta ("The Fosters"), Michael Vickerman ("Impact"), Elice Island Entertainment's Jeremy Elice, and Angela Mancuso ("Spartacus," "Helen of Troy"), and written by Michael Vickerman along with Peter Paige & Bradley Bredeweg ("The Fosters"). Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV will also serve as an Executive Producer. Irene Litinsky ("Being Human") serves as a producer.
