After previewing the first night of Spike’s three-night, six-hour event, this is a must see ambitious drama full of unexpected twists and turns as we watch a manipulated boy ruler become an effective leader of his people. Jeff Russo's music score accentuates the drama.
Spike’s Tut recounts 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. Night two and three will air on Spike Monday, July 20 and Tuesday, July 21 at 9:00 – 11:00 PM, ET/PT.

“Tut” reveals, for the first time on television, the story of the Egyptian Pharaoh, one of the most renowned leaders in human history. “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.
