Spike TV’s just released the first Tut trailer featuring Sir Ben Kingsley and Avan Jogia. Tut is the network’s new dramatic limited event series and is set to air at 9pm ET/PT on July 19, 20, and 21st.
The cast also includes Nonso Anozie, Sibylla Deen, Alexander Siddig, Kylie Bunbury, Iddo Goldberg, and Peter Gadiot. Joel S. Rice, Michael Prupas, Greg Gugliotta, Michael Vickerman, Jeremy Elice, Angela Mancuso, David Von Ancken, and Sharon Levy executive produced the six hour series.

Spike’s Tut tells the astounding saga of one of history’s most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun (King Tut), his rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. Tut opens up a fascinating window into a world filled with heart-breaking romance, epic battles, political backstabbing, conspiracy, jealousy, and even murder — proving his world was not far removed from our own — and that his reign as the youngest Egyptian king played out as a real-life drama for the ages.
