First trailer from ‘The Spoils of Babylon’

Posted on October 11, 2013 and filed under The Spoils of Babylon

The first full-length trailer for the upcoming ICF mini-series The Spoils of Babylon is here! Kristen Wiig plays the part of Cynthia Morehouse and acts alongside Tobey Maguire, Will Ferrell, Val Kilmer, Haley Joel Osment, Tim Robbins, Michael Sheen, Jessica Alba and more. Quite a cast, right? “The whole show is ridiculous and I mean that in the best way,” Kristen says of the series. “The things this family goes through, the murder and the lies and the affairs, is so absurd and bizarre and written so well.” You can watch the trailer in the video archive and read the official synopsis below. The six-part mini-series will air on IFC starting January 9, 2014.

The Spoils of Babylon, a century-spanning saga, chronicles the sexy and dramatic lives of the Morehouse family, led by Jonas Morehouse, his daughter Cynthia and her adopted brother Devon who made their fortune in the oil business. The series takes viewers from the oil fields of Texas to boardrooms in New York City, through war torn battlefields and velvet-sheeted bedrooms.

Cynthia and Devon’s unbridled and taboo passion for one another cannot be prevented. Add in Cynthia’s evil son Winston, her put upon husband Chet Halner, and Devon’s new love interest Dixie Mellonworth, and the booze, the pills, more passion, more pills and the heartache, and you have a mercurial potboiler. Then add in illegal arms deals, international espionage, the Shah of Iran and two US Army Generals and it begins to overflow with boiling liquid in a pot on a hot stove that is operational.
