Max Brown has reflected on the shock cancellation of Hieroglyph.
The Ancient Egypt drama series was scrapped last summer, months ahead of its intended premiere after Fox decided to go in a different direction.
Looking back at the axing, Brown, who played the lead on Hieroglyph, opened up to Digital Spy about the experience:
“It’s a tough experience to go through. It was a really interesting role, and I really put my heart and soul into filming it.
I was excited about the show, but I think it’s happened to every actor that you meet – they shoot a pilot for a show and it doesn’t happen.
Unfortunately this was meant to go straight to series, but when they did the numbers and looked at it, they decided not to go ahead with it.”
Along with the show’s high production costs, Brown blames the departure of former Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly for Hieroglyph‘s demise:
“It was his vehicle, so when he left, it left with him. It’s a shame, but it’s an aspect of our work.”
