A notorious thief is plucked out of the prison to serve a Pharaoh obsessed with maintaining power.

Latest news is that this upcoming 13-episode action-adventure tv-series by 20th Century Fox TV and Chernin Entertainment has been CANCELLED, despite half of the episodes having already been filmed and a trailer published. Apparently the show wasn't coming together creatively in the way that executives had hoped. The series was to be set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality are intertwined. It would follow a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve a Pharoah who rules with an iron fist and fully trusts no one, being obsessed with maintaining power, which he’ll do by any means necessary. In the process, the thief has to batlle palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and divine sorcerers. What remains is the published trailer.
