Tut stars Avan Jogia and Ben Kingsley look quite regal in the new key art for Spike’s upcoming limited series.
When it premieres, Tut will recount the astounding saga of one of history’s most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun aka 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. Avan stars as the Boy King himself, alongside Academy Award®-winning actor Ben Kingsley as Tut’s closest advisor, Vizer Ay.
According to Spike, the key art captures Tut and Ay’s dynamic, as both characters are merged together, depicting their struggle for power. The art features the iconic Egyptian colors of blue and gold that evoke a sense of warmth and coldness, of life and death.
Take a look at the key art below:
The network also recently released an action packed trailer for the series.
In addition to Jogia and Kingsley, Tut also stars Nonso Anozie, Sibylla Deen, Kylie Bunbury, Alexander Siddig, Peter Gadiot and Iddo Goldberg.
