The Spoils Of Babylon

The Spoils Of Babylon

"The Spoils of Babylon" is a television adaptation of a best-selling epic novel by fictional famous author Eric Jonrosh (played by Ferrell) and will feature an ensemble cast to be announced later. The blowsy century-spanning saga chronicles the sexy and dramatic lives of a family who made their fortune in the oil business. IFC has ordered six, half-hour episodes to premiere in late 2013. "This is a crazy and maybe even a stupid idea," says Will Ferrell. "IFC is either really courageous or really stupid which makes them the perfect partner for us," he added. In the vein of The Thorn Birds and Winds of War, the epic story of The Spoils of Babylon spans three generations, taking viewers from the oil fields of Texas to boardrooms in New York City, through world war battlefields and velvet sheeted bedrooms. As the story unfolds, the booze, the passion and the heartache lead to illegal arms deals and international espionage with the Shah of Iran not to mention the creation of the doomed sub-prime market.

It's so different from any other comedies, but it's absolutely fantastic!
