Condola - Hieroglyph

Its trailer didn't look particularly excite me, but I was willing to wait to actually watch a few episodes first before offering any commentary. Unfortunately, I won't get that opportunity, because, in maybe an atypical move, Fox has canceled "Hieroglyph," the ancient Egypt-set, action-adventure drama, before a single episode has even aired. 

The straight-to-series, 13-episode order which was slated to debut in 2015, "wasn’t coming together creatively in the way that executives had hoped," sources tell Entertainment Weekly. 

Set in ancient Egypt, "Hieroglyph" was described as a combo fantasy and reality, ambitious action-adventure series from "Pacific Rim" and "Clash of the Titans" writer Travis Beacham, which was to follow a notorious thief who leaves prison to serve the Pharaoh - a move that places him amid lots intrigue within palace walls; sex, crime, the usual.

Condola Rashad, in what would've been her first TV series regular role, was to play Nefertari Kanahkt - "a rare beauty who intimidates even the strongest of suitors… and she knows it," as Fox described how the character will be portrayed in the series. 

Too bad.

Maybe another network will pick it up? Maybe Netflix or Yahoo will *save* it?
