WASHINGTON, January 17,  2014 – Remember the mini-series epidemic of the ‘70s – ’80s like “Rich Man, Poor Man” and “The Thorn Birds?” Will Ferrell’s production team will be reincarnating the bygone trend with “The Spoils of Babylon” on IFC.

Those old enough to  remember the parade of overblown drama and ridiculous plot twists of the mini-series genre, the opportunity to see it mocked is almost delightful.  For the younger ones, Will Ferrell in just about anything may be enough to attract a fresh audience.

This next week has us half-way through the six-episode series begins with Ferrell as Eric Jonrosh, the bestselling author of the fictional epic. He seems to be channeling Orson Welles as he introduces that night’s plot line. Tobey Maguire, Val Kilmer, Jessica Alba, Kristin Wiig and Tim Robbins also star.

Catch “The Spoils of Babylon” Thursday at 10 p.m. on IFC.
