“Victorious” and “Twisted” star Avan Jogia has just signed on for a new limited TV series based on King Tut! Avan will play the title role and will star alongside actor Ben Kingsley, who will play Ay – the vizier to King Tutankhamun.
The Spike TV show will film in Morocco and Canada in the fall, and it will premiere on the network in 2015. Fingers crossed the cast shares photos from the set!
Here’s a note from Spike Original Series Executive VP Sharon Levy:
We are thrilled to work with such an incredibly gifted young actor who is perfectly suited to take on the immensely complex character of King Tutankhamun.
We can’t wait to see Avan on the show!
