‘Being Human’ Alum Anna Fricke to Run Fox’s ‘Hieroglyph’

Anna Fricke has signed on to the Fox drama “Hieroglyph” as exec producer and showrunner as part of a two-year overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV.

Hieroglyph,” set in ancient Egypt, earned a 13-episode straight-to-series order from Fox last October. The adventure drama about a thief plucked from prison to serve the Pharaoh was created by scribe Travis Beacham.

“Hieroglyph” is an ambitious high-priority for 20th, which took its time finding a showrunner to aid Beacham in executing the show. It’s expected to lense in Los Angeles and Albuquerque, N.M.

“Anna’s a spectacular writer and showrunner who can literally do it all – from big genre shows like ‘Being Human’ to  more intimate character pieces like ‘Men in Trees’—and we are thrilled to be in business with her exclusively,” said 20th TV chairman-CEO Gary Newman. “The combination of Travis Beacham’s very unique vision for this show with Anna’s wealth of experience makes for about as great a creative pairing as you could imagine. And we eagerly look forward to developing with Anna down the road.”

Fricke is coming off a five-season run as showrunner of Syfy’s “Being Human.” Her previous credits include WB Network’s “Everwood” and ABC’s “Men in Trees.”

Fricke is repped by UTA and attorney Patti Felker.
