Storyline

"Tut" reveals, for the first time on television, the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh, one of the most renowned leaders in human history. This ambitious special-event series tells the story of 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. "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. Written by D. Schwarz

Trivia

Tut is believed to have died from complications following an accident which severely injured one of his legs, fracturing it and breaking through the skin. MRI and CT analysis of his mummy shows the injury, which did not heal, indicating it was perimortem. DNA analysis also shows that he repeatedly suffered from the most severe type of malaria. There was coriander in his tomb, a spice used to treat fever during his time. Tut had a malformed bone in one of his feet, possibly genetic, that probably caused him to limp. He was buried with many canes that were used, as evidenced by wear. It is supposed that Tut was injured during a hunting expedition, possibly a chariot accident. Having been weakened by malaria, it is thought that he developed an infection from the broken bone and leg injury that overwhelmed him causing his death. It is possible he had internal injuries that contributed, however, the mummification process had made finding evidence difficult as his organs were removed. See more »

Tushratta, king of the Mitanni was not the enemy of Egypt. He spent most of his reign fighting the Hittites. See more »

Ancient Eqypt is a piece of history that has been somewhat overlooked by modern day filmmakers. "Tut" is supposed to fill the gap, but sadly fails on a lot of levels.

First the good stuff. It's visually gorgeous, nicely filmed and the acting is decent.

However. The series completely fails as a believable story about an interesting period in ancient Eqypt. First and foremost, the fact that they chose Farao Tutanchamon for this is ample proof of a choice based on his fame with the public rather than his impact on history. Tutanchamon was in fact a puppet-king that had all major decisions made for him by advisors. Even if that hadn't been the case, his reign of only a few years would've been too short to have any lasting significance. Tut is only famous because his mummified body is one of the best preserverd of all the faraos of ancient Egypt.

All in all, what we learn from this series is that if you ever want a historical epic dedicated to you 2000 years in the future, you had best get started on your impregnable pyramid already.
