Avan Jogia will play the young renowned Egyptian ruler, King Tutankhamun, in Spike TV’s event series “Tut, it was announced today by Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV.
“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,” said Levy.
“Vancouver born actor Avan Jogia will be an outstanding addition to the cast of Tut,” says Michael Prupas, CEO of Muse Entertainment. “Jogia is a hot young talent with a loyal following who has already made a name for himself in film and television.”
Jogia, one of Hollywood’s emerging young actors, will next be seen in Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s Ten Thousand Saints with Hailee Steinfeld, Emile Hirsch, Asa Butterfield, Ethan Hawke, and Emily Mortimer. Also coming soon will be Eddie O’Keefe’s Shangri-La Suite with Emily Browning, Ashley Greene, and Luke Grimes. He is currently shooting one of the leads of Outskirts opposite Ashley Rickards, Eden Sher, and Victoria Justice.
Last month, Spike announced that legendary actor Ben Kingsley will star in Spike TV’s event series in the key role of “Ay,” the Grand Vizier to King Tutankhamun who wields tremendous power and influence as the top advisor to the young Egyptian ruler.
“Tut” will be shot entirely on location in Morocco and Canada this fall and will debut on the network in 2015. This will be Spike TV’s first scripted event series in eight years and is another step in the network’s move to reaching a more gender-balanced audience.
“Tut” is being produced for Spike TV by Muse Entertainment (“The Kennedys,” “Being Human,” “The Pillars of the Earth,” “Bomb Girls”) with Joel S. Rice and Michael Prupas as Executive Producers from Muse. The project is also executive produced by Greg Gugliotta (“The Fosters”), Michael Vickerman (“Impact”), Elice Island Entertainment’s Jeremy Elice, Angela Mancuso (“Spartacus”), and Director/Executive Producer David Von Ancken (“Hell on Wheels”) and written by Michael Vickerman, Peter Paige & Bradley Bredeweg (“The Fosters”). Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike TV will also serve as an Executive Producer. Producers are Irene Litinsky (“Being Human”), Guy Louthan (“The Call”) and Gilles Perrault (“Being Human”) and Vlad Wolynetz is Co-Executive Producer.
‘The Outskirts’ is an upcoming American comedy film directed by Peter Hutchings and written by Dominique Ferrari and Suzanne Wrubel. The film stars Victoria Justice, Eden Sher, Ashley Rickards, Peyton List and Avan Jogia.
The Outskirts is set to arrive in theaters in 2015.
The film is about what happens when a high school’s uncool kids overthrow the popular crew, led by the Blair Waldorf-like Whitney (Claudia Lee). There’s drama, there’s humor. And, as with any good teen movie, there are tears.
“What made me want to direct this movie more than just being really excited to see it when it came out is the fact that the first time I read the script, I was laughing so hard and by the time I got to the end, I was in tears,” director Peter Hutchings, who describes the film as “nerd-tastic,” told EW.
