Next summer belongs to Eric Jonrosh. In 2015, the long awaited adaptation of Jonrosh’s first novel – The Spoils Before Dying – will hit airwaves. After the popularity and success of The Spoils of Babylon, IFC and Funny or Die had to bow to the will of the people and bring another installment of the Spoils franchise to life.
Get your jazz hands ready, because Jonrosh’s story takes viewers into the seedy underbelly of the 1950s jazz scene, in a detective story positively buzzing with erotic charge and a murder investigation that spins out of control.
The monumental television event will premiere in summer 2015 with six brand new episodes once again featuring author-director-writer Eric Jonrosh (played by Will Ferrell) as the wine loving bon vivant who opens and closes each riveting episode with his personal insight.
Here’s what the executive producers had to say about the news:
“Hang on to your hats America! This one’s going to be totally bonkers!” – Will Ferrell
“Television audiences haven’t clamored this much for a second season since After M*A*S*H*” – Matt Piedmont
“Eric Jonrosh is a drunk who urinated in my sink when he came to our house for dinner, but damn he writes great miniseries.” – Andrew Steele
“The first Spoils mini-series beat the NFL and Big Bang Theory in ratings (adults: ages 74-92) and changed the way Americans talk, think and prepare meat. We anticipate this new series from Jonrosh with Steele and Piedmont becoming the most watched television event in the history of earth.” – Adam McKay
