Hieroglyph was a proposed American action-adventure drama[1] series created by Travis Beacham, who served as executive producer on the show along with Katherine Pope, Peter Chernin and Miguel Sapochnik. Sapochnik directed the first episode. The series was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment.[1][2] Originally scheduled for a spring 2015 premiere,[3] it was announced at the end of June 2014 that Fox had shut down production and canceled the series before airing an episode.[4]

Development[edit]

On October 17, 2013, Fox announced that it had dropped the pilot stage for Hieroglyph and would straight away commit to a 13-episode season.[12] The series was expected to begin filming in March 2014 in New Mexico at the Albuquerque Studios.[13] Kevin Reilly for Fox Entertainment has stated that "We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings on – no better place to set that than ancient Egypt."

Fox canceled the series in June 2014, saying the series was not coming together the way executives had hoped.[4]

Cindy Elavsky said of the trailer, "it looked like a cheap Game of Thrones rip-off, so maybe Fox execs were saving us from finding that out for ourselves."[14]
