In the three-night miniseries, a young King Tut (Avan Jogia) must navigate troubled waters that are civic responsibility and personal desire in order to emerge as Egypt's strongest ruler. Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley plays the young monarch's mentor, Ay.
In the trailer provided by Entertainment Weekly, Tut asks: "Who can I trust?" to which Kingsley's character coldly replies, "No one." The special-event series is expected to be one filled with ancient political warfare, murder, conspiracy, romance and the struggle for power.
