Fox cancels Ancient Egyptian drama before airing first episode

A new period drama, 'Hieroglyph,' has been cancelled before the first episode was aired

Published: Updated:

A new period drama, 'Hieroglyph,' has been cancelled before even the first episode was aired, it was reported on Tuesday.

The series is an action-fantasy about a thief who serves a pharaoh in search of an ancient scroll, starring Max Brown, Condola Rashad and John Rhys-Davies.

'Hieroglyph,' from 'Pacific Rim' writer Travis Beacham and Chernin Entertainment, was subject to high costs and the studio’s disappointment with the quality of the story planning the season, according to Hollywood Reporter.

The fact that Fox entertainment chief, Kevin Reilly, left the network didn't aid the series, as he had given it the green light the 13 episode order for early 2015.
