SPIKE TV RELEASES NEW LOOK AT EPIC SUMMER SERIES "TUT"

Stars Ben Kingsley and Avan Jogia

Three Night Event Premieres Sunday, July 19 at 9 pm ET/PT

Spike TV has today released its second trailer for its epic summer event series Tut. Starring by Academy Award(R)-winning actor Ben Kingsley and Avan Jogia, this three-night, six hour limited event series premieres Sunday, July 19 at 9 PM, ET/PT and airs thru Tuesday, July 21.

The new video entitled "Trust," is a moody, chilling piece told from the boy king's point of view that humanizes the Pharaoh's god-like status by revealing the vulnerabilities that exist inside his own palace. Tut's (Jogia) question of "Whom can I trust?," and his Vizier's (Kingsley) stone-faced delivery of "No one," sets the stage for a world where deceit and menace run rampant. With a target on his back and a kingdom full of ambitious men and women, Tut navigates through those closest to him to sort out his enemies from those who are truly loyal. The two-minute piece teases gripping performances matched with grand palatial exteriors, expansive dessert landscapes, and brutal battle scenes.

Spike's Tut recounts, for the first time on television, a dramatized saga of one of history's most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun aka King Tut, his rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. Thrust into power after the murder of his father, Tut (Jogia) is forced to marry his strong willed, ambitious half-sister (Sibylla Deen) in order to maintain the dynasty. In love with a commoner (Kylie Bunbury), he struggles to protect her from the jealous queen. And although Tut rules as Pharaoh, he is exploited by a shrewd Grand Vizier (Kingsley), a ruthless military General (Nonso Anozie) and a scheming High Priest (Alexander Siddig) who look down on him as someone they can control. But through unexpected twists and turns, Tut strives to overcome the odds, rising from a manipulated prince into an unlikely hero who triumphs over his enemies both from within and without leading his kingdom to glory.

Tut is produced for Spike by Muse Entertainment (The Kennedys, Being Human, The Pillars of the Earth, Bomb Girls) with Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas as Executive Producers from Muse. The project is also executive produced by Greg Gugliotta (The Fosters), Michael Vickerman (Impact), Elice Island Entertainment's Jeremy Elice, Angela Mancuso (Spartacus), and Director/Executive Producer David Von Ancken (Salem, Hell on Wheels) and written by Michael Vickerman, Peter Paige & Bradley Bredeweg (The Fosters). Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV also serves as an Executive Producer. Producers are Irene Litinsky (Being Human) and Guy Louthan (The Call) and Vlad Wolynetz is Co-Executive Producer.
