Get ready for the new daily show

Ridley Scott’s new show at HBO sounds awesome…

April 26th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Ridley Scott has signed on to Pharaoh at HBO and it sounds totally mind-fryingly spectacular!

The series will be set in ancient Egypt and will tell the story of how aliens were responsible for the creation of the Egyptian empires… so sort of like Stargate meets Ancient Aliens, then? With a smidge of Prometheus… that’ll do for us!

Scott plans on executive producing and will direct if a full series goes ahead…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
