Direct from her role in Romeo and Juliet on Broadway, Condola Rashad has joined Fox’s upcoming drama series HIEROGLYPH.
HIEROGLYPH is set in ancient Egypt and centers on a thief who is taken from prison to serve the Pharaoh, played by Reece Ritchie (who describes himself as “mixed”). The 13 episode series combines fantasy and reality and involves sorcerers, the criminal underground, romantic scandals and more.
Rashad will play Nefertari, the Pharaoh’s beautiful half-sister.
The series was created by Travis Beacham. He will produce alongside Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope and Miguel Sapochnik, who is set to direct the pilot episode.
