(Relaxnews) – The channel has skipped the pilot and ordered a full 13-episode season of “Hieroglyph,” a new historical fantasy series.
After coming close to getting greenlighted two years ago, “Hieroglyph” will finally hit the airwaves in the 2014-2015 season on Fox. The series will explore life in ancient Egypt through the lens of an expert thief who comes out of prison to serve the Pharaoh.
Travis Beacham, who contributed to the screenplays of “Clash of the Titans” and “Pacific Rim,” developed the premise on “Hieroglyph.” The series will span across different genres, combining drama within the Pharaoh’s court with an exploration of the criminal underbelly of the ancient world, along with just a dash of mythology and fantasy, according to a description from Fox.
The cast and crew of “Hieroglyph” will begin production in early 2014.
