Condola Rashad To Play Nefertari in New Fox Series ‘Hieroglyph’

condola rashadCondola Rashad, coming off her starring turn opposite Orlando Bloom in “Romeo and Juliet” on Broadway, has been tapped to co-star in Fox’s 13-episode series “Hieroglyph”.

Produced by 20th Century Fox TV and Chernin Entertainment, “Hieroglyph”, which is eyed for next season, is set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwined. It follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah (Reece Ritchie), navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers.

Rashad will play Nefertari, the Pharaoh’s half-sister with a rare beauty that intimidates even the strongest of suitors… and she knows it. Executive producing are creator Travis Beacham, Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope and Miguel Sapochnik, who will direct the premiere episode.

Rashad is one of the hottest young Broadway actresses with back-to-back Tony nominations for “Stick Fly” in 2012 and “The Trip to Bountiful” in 2013. She just completed a successful run playing Juliet in “Romeo and Juliet”. On TV, she starred in Lifetime’s highly rated “Steel Magnolias” remake and recurred on NBC’s “Smash”.
