Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, who might as well be known as “Zahi the Great and Mighty Curator of Upper and Lower Egypt”, now has his very own television show. Premiering July 14th at 10pm on the History Channel, “Chasing Mummies” is basically a reality TV show that follows Dr. Hawass and small band of intrepid but determined amateur archaeologists on various finds.
And he screams at them.
Here’s the quick teaser.
And here’s the full promo video. It’s great fun if you’ve seen Dr. Hawass in other Ancient Egypt shows, you’ll find a lot of “in humor” regarding his legendary temperament and epic ego (whether real or just for show).
It should at least be worth a look, that’s for certain.
