Hieroglyph Axed Before Airing
It's strange. Apart from Gotham, there was at least one other upcoming series from FOX that had piqued my interest and that was Egyptian themed fantasy drama, Hieroglyph but it seems the show has now been axed from the station despite no episodes actually airing in the first place.
The series, starring Max Brown (Spooks) as notorious thief Ambrose in the series, plucked from prison by the Pharaoh to tackle criminals, sorcerers and other dangers was due to film another 12 episodes along with the already filmed pilot, in preparation for the 2014-2015 TV season until FOX decided not to go ahead with the series. It's a shame as judging from the trailer, it seemed like a potentially interesting series.

So were FOX right not to pick up the series and will another station pick it up instead? Personally I'm hoping someone else does pick it up and fairly sharpish too.
