Hieroglyph: FOX Cancels TV Series Order

Hieroglyph FOX TV show canceledThe network giveth and the network taketh away. FOX has cancelled their new Ancient Egypt dramatic series Hieroglyph. The project was given a straight-to-series order last October by the then-programming chief Kevin Reilly.

Hieroglyph had been scheduled for mid-season. One episode has been shot and several others have been scripted. The show stars John Rhys-Davies, Reece Ritchie, Kelsey Chow, Condola Rashad, Caroline Ford, and Antony Bunsee. EW reports that the writers were given the news of the cancellation earlier today.

Here’s the FOX show’s trailer:

Hell YES, I was looking forward to this series! How very different it looked from everything else. When was the last time anyone saw anything about ancient Egypt? I couldn’t wait! What a shame to not even give it a chance. They’ll probably just replace it with another cheap piece of $#@* reality show.

“Set in Ancient Egypt” is a hell of alot different to “about Ancient Egypt”.

It didn’t sound promising, so perhaps FOX cut their losses early.

To be fair, the trailer looks a bit rubbish.
Some unnecessary tittilation, as is the current trend (thanks HBO), rubbish mystisism, half baked political “intrigue” and what looks like vampires.
Just a note for TV execs – “intrigue” is NOT making everyone untrustworthy, self serving Aholes, that’s called a lazy way to have all your actors on a short lease because you can always off them.

Actually it sounds interesting but I’m so tired of Brits, etc. on all of our shows. What the heck is wrong w/putting American Actors on all of our shows and just using others once in a while? How many of our actors get work in other countries on a regular basis?
Keep the work here…without having to try to understand all the different accents!!

Great. Now maybe they can reconsider bringing back Rake. Fox has already wasted enough money. Bring RAKE back and stick to one night and one time.
