Tut marks Spike TV’s first scripted event series in eight years and will premiere later this year.

Russo will also return to score the second season of FX’s Fargo, which is set to premiere later this year. The composer’s other current projects include A&E’s The Returned, CBS’ CSI: Cyber and Battle Creek, USA’s Complications and Starz’s Power.
