Will Ferrell’s mini-series parody for IFC will feature Kristen Wiig, Jessica Alba, Tim Robbins, more! (Video)

IFC’s new original comedy The Spoils of Babylon will feature a dream team of comedians and A-list types, including Jessica Alba, Val Kilmer, Tobey Maguire, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen, Tim Robbins and Kristen Wiig. They’ll join Will Ferrell — his production company is producing — onscreen in the mini-series parody, based on the fake best-selling novel by fake writer Eric Jonrosh.

Centered on the oil-rich Morehouse family, the series will follow Jonas Morehouse (Robbins), his daughter Cynthia (Wiig) and her adopted brother Devon (Maguire). Ferrell plays the Shah of Iran. The six half-hour episodes are currently in production in Los Angeles and is scheduled to air early next year. Check out a teaser below!
