The six-part dark comedy — created by Matt Piedmont and Andrew Steele, and produced by Ferrell’s Funny or Die — is the bizarre adaptation of a non-existent novel penned by fictional author Eric Jonrosh (voiced by Ferrell). The show follows a dysfunctional family of oil tycoons led by Jonas Morehouse (Tim Robbins). His children, played by Kristen Wiig and Tobey Maguire, are set to inherit the fortune if they can fight their forbidden love for each other, (“I kicked heroin, I can’t kick you,” Maguire tells Wiig before they embrace).

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.
