Fox Cancels ‘Hieroglyph’ Before Airing a Single Episode

Not all fantasies become realities. Case in point: Hieroglyph, the planned Fox drama set in ancient Egypt.

Although the project, from Travis Beacham (Pacific Rim) and Miguel Sapochnik (Fringe), was ordered straight to series for a midseason debut, the network has decided to pull the plug. Only the pilot episode was shot, but several other episodes were written. According to Entertainment Weekly, the series “wasn’t creatively coming together the way executives had hoped.”

Before its untimely demise, Hieroglyph was imagined as Fox’s answer to Game of Thrones, following the adventures of a “notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the pharaoh, forcing him to navigate palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and divine sorcerers, as he races to stop the downfall of one of history’s greatest civilizations.”

    It probably was a mercy killing, but it may be more of a result of a regime change at FOX, in which the new Powers That Be didn’t like what the old Powers That Be had signed off on.

    Harsh. Even for FOX. At least show the pilot and let viewers decide. Going back on a decision like that affecting everyone involved is not cool. Stuff like this makes me fear for Gotham.
