ZED announced the international distribution of Tombs Of Egypt: The Ultimate Mission, the brand new miniseries from Label News about the archaeological mission of Zahi Hawass, who has discovered burial shafts with coffins and several artifacts from the necropolis Saqqara in Egypt.
With exclusive access to this mission, using CGI, 2D computer graphics, 2D and 3D maps, plans, animations, X-ray analyses, along with live footage and interviews of international experts both in the laboratory and on the field, the series will show how the team was able to open each sarcophagus to investigate the mysteries of the necropolis and understand who was buried here.
"Living and capturing such a mission is absolutely unique, especially because we have both exclusive access and scientists on site to analyze the elements," says François Pomès, producer. "Beyond the spectacular excavations, we are investigating to go back in time and tell the stories of the Egyptians buried here more than 2500 years ago."
"We’re thrilled to bring this program to the international market," adds Chloé Persyn- Preljocaj, Head of Distribution at ZED. "In the current context, the audience wants to be entertained and we’ve noticed a strong demand for adventure and exploration programs."
Produced for RMC Découverte, directed by François Pomès and Anne-Fleur Delaistre, this 2x70’ & 2x52' will be delivered in September 2021.
