The show will premiere on IFC in early 2014.

Great news out of IFC HQ: Jessica Alba, Val Kilmer, Tobey Maguire, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen, Tim Robbins and Kristen Wiig are confirmed to join Will Ferrell in IFC’s new original comedy, “The Spoils of Babylon.” The show is shaping up to be an epic parody of the epic mini-series of our epic television past. Did we just use “epic” three times in one sentence? We did, because “The Spoils of Babylon” deserves nothing less than an exuberant and prolific use of that adjective. Produced by Funny or Die and executive produced by Ferrell, Adam McKay, Matt Piedmont, Andrew Steele and Nate Young, “The Spoils of Babylon,” was created by Steele and Piedmont, who also wrote the series, and Piedmont will direct. Production began June 2 in Los Angeles. Six, half-hour episodes will premiere on IFC in early 2014.

“This amazingly talented cast will give this decadent genre its due respect,” said Jennifer Caserta, president and general manager of IFC. “Never before has a parody of a mini-series been more poised for showers of accolades.”

Spoils of Babylon is a television adaptation of a best-selling epic novel by fictional famous author Eric Jonrosh (Ferrell) whose library spans 57 best-sellers in 85 different languages. Jonrosh’s other titles include: “The Spoils of Galaxy 7,” “The Spoils of Grasping for God,” “The Spoils of the Sahara,” “The Spoils of the Singing Night Squirrel,” “The Spoils of the Weeping Falcon,” and “The Spoils Beneath the Sea.”

“The Spoils of Babylon” will premiere on IFC in early 2014.
