"Tut" is a miniseries on Spike TV that brings the astounding saga of one of history's most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun (King Tut), to life. Avan Jogia stars in the lead role, alongside legendary actor Ben Kingsley.

The miniseries reveals, for the first time on television, the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh, one of the most renowned leaders in human history. The story follows Tut's rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests. The miniseries 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.

In addition to Kingsley and Jogia, the cast includes Nonso Anozie ("Zoo"), Sibylla Deen ("Tyrant"), Alexander Siddig ("Game of Thrones"), Kylie Bunbury ("Under the Dome"), Iddo Goldberg ("Salem") and Peter Gadiot ("Once Upon a Time in Wonderland").

"Tut" is produced by Muse Entertainment ("The Kennedys," "Being Human," "Pillars of the Earth," "Bomb Girls") with Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas from Muse. The project is executive produced by Greg Gugliotta ("The Fosters"), Michael Vickerman ("Impact"), Elice Island Entertainment's Jeremy Elice, and Angela Mancuso ("Spartacus," "Helen of Troy"), and written by Michael Vickerman along with Peter Paige & Bradley Bredeweg ("The Fosters"). Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV also serves as an executive producer. Irene Litinsky ("Being Human") serves as a producer.
