First Look: Spoils of Babylon

Funny or Die, the website created by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay has a new television mini-series in the works. Called The Spoils of Babylon, it's basically a send up of things like The Thorn Birds, Dallas, and Flowers in the Attic.

The blurb from IFC is freaking hilarious:

After decades of anticipation, Eric Jonrosh’s best-selling novel is finally getting the television adaptation it deserves. The Spoils of Babylon—the sweeping, provocative tale of the mighty Morehouse family—premieres on Thursday, January 9 at 10/9c on IFC.
Fearing that Hollywood would sully his masterpiece, Eric Jonrosh wrote, directed and financed The Spoils of Babylon himself. His original, 22-hour version has been faithfully edited into epic TV event, featuring Jessica Alba, Will Ferrell, Jellybean Howie, Val Kilmer, Tobey Maguire, Haley Joel Osment, Tim Robbins, Michael Sheen, Steve Tom and Kristen Wiig with a cameo by David Spade and the voice of Carey Mulligan. Watch the trailer below.

Are you kidding me with that premise and that cast? Fantastic. Who's with me?
