Tut recounts the astounding saga of one of history's most extraordinary rulers, Tutankhamun (King Tut), his rise to power and his struggle to lead Egypt to glory, while his closest advisors, friends and lovers scheme for their own nefarious interests.
Thrust into power after the murder of his father, Tut is forced to marry his strong willed, ambitious sister in order to maintain the dynasty. In love with a commoner, he struggles to protect her from the jealous queen. And although Tut rules as Pharaoh, he is exploited by a shrewd Grand Vizier, a ruthless military General and a scheming High Priest who look down on him as someone they can control. But through unexpected twists and turns, Tut strives to overcome the odds, rising from a manipulated ruler into an unlikely hero who triumphs over his enemies, both from within and without, leading his kingdom to glory.
In addition to Kingsley and Jogia, the cast includes Nonzo Anozie, Sibylla Deen, Alexander Siddig, Peter Gadiot, Kylie Bunbury, and Iddo Goldberg.
