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

User Reviews

 
Was not really very good, but at same time tremendous fun
23 July 2015 | by martykateSee all my reviews

It was gaudy eye candy. The actors were good and deserving of a much better script. Not very historically accurate, especially the portrayal of the Mitanni, the script, but who cares? Visually it was a real treat, obviously a lot of care was used in putting this together. Unfortunately, I know quite a bit about Egyptian history, so I watched with a cynical eye. This was Egyptian melodrama, and Avan Jogja made a very sexy Tut. Even though I kept going "what?" I watched it from beginning to end and had fun with it. "Troy" was good, too, in its own way, though not the greatest of movies. This is the kind of event you have to let yourself enjoy
