Kemetic Roots: King Tut Series Coming to Spike TV

Spike TV King TutSpike TV just added a new project to its slate, a series following the life of Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen, known as King Tut.

The six-part series is based on historical facts and recently discovered DNA evidence that determine the boy king was the son of King Akhenaton.

Set during the years of 1333 to 1323 BC, the show will explore the drama of power, political backstabbing, war and murder and chronicle King Tut’s rise to glory, his efforts to rule a chaotic empire and the enigma surrounding his death.

As a young boy, Tut was thrust into power after the murder of his father. The neophyte ruler is forced to marry his sister in order to maintain the dynasty. Although Tut rules as Pharaoh, he is controlled like a puppet by three formidable men who plot against him and vie for the throne themselves. Against all odds, Tut grows from an insecure and manipulated prince to a hero on the battlefield, leading his kingdom into war and victory. Just as he takes control of his nation and his destiny, he is betrayed.

The series will be produced by Muse Entertainment’s Michael Prupas, Joel S. Rice and Greg Gugliotta. Michael Vickerman will be penning the script along with Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige.

National Geographic has dedicated a lot of time and research into the mystery surrounding  King Tut, check out their video below.

    Lets do some basic sums: 400 (or so) years of wages per enslaved (wo)man, index it to inflation (possibly 4.6% per year OVER 400Yyrs), add the Reparation Bill for the constant torture endured by these poor souls, add the Restitution Bill (for the Unjust Enrichment or profits that were stolen). Well that comes into a very large TRUE BILL. This is a message FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EARS TO HEAR AND EYES TO SEE!
