In The Spoils Before Dying, the seedy underbelly of 1950s Los Angeles is laid bare and jazz pianist Rock Banyon (Michael Kenneth Williams) is a man accused of murdering the love of his life (and his favorite songbird) Fresno Foxglove (Maya Rudolph). But he’s also a man who even the cops seem to think isn’t capable of the crime. They give him three full days (including today) to prove his innocence—and his latest boozy fling Delores DeWinter (Kristen Wiig) probably can’t help.
The steamy six-part saga from the mind of Eric Jonrosh (Will Ferrell) stars Williams, Wiig, Rudolph, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen, Tim Meadows, Kate McKinnon and many more. The three night comedy miniseries event kicks off on IFC on Wednesday July 8, with two back-to-back half-hour episodes, with two more half-hour episodes airing each evening starting at 9 on Thursday, July 9 and Friday, July 10.
The Spoils Before Dying premieres on IFC on Wednesday, July 8 at 9p.
