Kristen Wiig's New Miniseries Looks Weird and Amazing


IFC just released the preview for their new Funny or Die miniseries The Spoils of Babylon, starring Tobey Maguire and Kristen Wiig. Is it a comedy? Yes! Is it a drama? Yes! Is it something out of one of your more vibrant fever dreams? Absolutely.

Based on the works of fictional (and fictionally famous) novelist Eric Jonrosh (Will Ferrell), The Spoils of Babylon chronicles the dramatic lives of the Morehouses, a family made rich by oil and led by Tim Robbins. From the trailer, the miniseries looks part Cohen Brothers, part David Lynch and part The Heart, She Holler. Add those things together and you’re left with something stylish, dark and surreal.

(And yes, the actor who you think looks like Haley Joel Osment in a wig is actually Haley Joel Osment in a wig.)
