The Spoils of Babylon

The Spoils of Babylon world premiere marks the most celebrated achievement in television history. Legendary author Eric Jonrosh (Will Ferrell), the undisputed master of dramatic fiction, introduces audiences to the brilliant adaptation of his best-selling novel, a sweeping chronicle of the provocative and captivating exploits of the Morehouse family. Patriarch Jonas Morehouse (Tim Robbins) shepherds his daughter Cynthia (Kristen Wiig) and adopted son Devon (Tobey Maguire) from meager beginnings in the oil fields of Texas to powerful boardrooms in New York City. Cynthia and Devon, entwined in undeniable love, stumble through war-torn battlefields, blazing mansions, filthy drug dens, and velvet-sheeted bedrooms on their quest for power and influence. Despite Jonas's best efforts to intervene, Cynthia and Devon's merciless love sets into motion a wave of destruction that crashes down on Devon's graceful wife Lady Anne (voiced by Carey Mulligan), his daughter Marianne (Jelly Howie), his colleague and lover Dixie (Jessica Alba), Cynthia's hen-pecked husband Chet (Michael Sheen), her evil son Winston (Haley Joel Osment), the scheming Generals (Val Kilmer and Steve Tom), and far beyond. The Spoils of Babylon is produced by Funny or Die for IFC and executive produced by Ferrell, Adam McKay, Matt Piedmont, Andrew Steele, and Nate Young. Steele and Piedmont created and wrote the series, and Piedmont directed.
