FOX Gives Series Order To Action-Adventure Drama 'Hieroglyph'Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has given a 13-episode series order to HIEROGLYPH, a fantastical action-adventure show produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Chernin Entertainment, and executive-produced by Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL) and Travis Beacham (“Pacific Rim,” “Clash of the Titans”), who wrote the pilot script. Miguel Sapochnik (“Repo Men,” “Fringe”) will serve as an executive producer on the project and will direct the premiere episode. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2014. Set in ancient Egypt, where fantasy and reality intertwined, HIEROGLYPH follows a notorious thief who is plucked from prison to serve the Pharoah, navigating palace intrigue, seductive concubines, criminal underbellies and even a few divine sorcerers. “We wanted to do a show about deceit, sex, intrigue in the court and fantastical goings-on – no better place to set that than ancient Egypt,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment for FOX. “Travis Beacham has an inventive mind, and he has wrapped this all together in this intoxicating new drama.” Based on his original story idea, Travis Beacham co-wrote the screenplay with director Guillermo Del Toro for this past summer’s sci-fi hit “Pacific Rim,” which has grossed more than $400 million worldwide since its release in July. Beacham also co-wrote the screenplay for the hit 2010 re-imagining of the classic mythic adventure “Clash of the Titans,” directed by Louis Leterrier. Beacham is currently writing the sequel to "Pacific Rim" for Legendary. He has penned screenplays for the feature films “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo” and a remake of the sci-fi classic, “The Black Hole.”

Kelly Kapowski- Saved by the Bell
Anyone who grew up in the 90’s remembers the students of Bayside High School. Tiffani blossomed in her role as Kelly Kapowski in Saved by the Bell. Young girls looked to Kelly as a fashion role model while young boys dreamed of being lucky enough to kiss the beautiful brunette. Kelly was such a popular television character, that anyone who sees Tiffani today still associates her with the young high school girl. Saved by the Bell also had two TV movies and one spin off, depicting the college years of the gang.
Valerie Malone- 90210
A year after the original Saved by the Bell series came to an end, Tiffani began her role as Valerie Malone in 90210. Valerie was a more complex character than Kelly, with a bit of a darker side and a painful past. She was still considered to be one of the more beautiful characters on the small screen. Valerie used her looks to seduce many different guys in the series including those who were involved with other girls.
Wilhelmina ‘Billie’ Chambers- Fastlane
In her short-lived role as Billie on Fastlane, Tiffani once again brought out her sex appeal while playing a police lieutenant. Billie was a little on the shady side and showed Tiffani’s ability to be more forceful and powerful. She was in charge of creating a two-man undercover team that dealt with the criminal world of Los Angeles.
Dr. Kayla Martin- Pandemic
Elizabeth Burke- White Collar
The sophisticated and attractive Elizabeth Burke is adored by White Collar fans almost as much as Saved by the Bell fans loved Kelly Kapowski. Elizabeth is a supportive wife to her husband Peter Burke and a powerful business woman as the owner of Burke Premiere Events. She seems to have it all together, proving that even after ten years, a husband and wife can still have a solid relationship. Even Neal has a great relationship with her. Elizabeth seems to be the type of woman that others envy.
