Fox has decided to table drama series “Hieroglyph,” which had been given a series order for the 2014-15 season.
The sprawling action-adventure drama set in ancient Egyptian times hailed from scribe Travis Beacham, Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. Anna Fricke, formerly with Syfy’s “Being Human,” had signed on as showrunner and exec producer.
“Hieroglyph” was developed under Fox’s new approach to drama series development under a straight to series order model. But the additional scripts that were coming in after the formal series order were underwhelming and the network decided to pull the plug before it got in much deeper on the costume drama. The first episode was shot in Los Angeles and New Mexico in the spring.
Fox had yet to set a formal premiere date beyond designating it as a midseason entry.
The decision likely reflects some rethinking of Fox’s slate in the »
