“Saturday Night Live” standouts Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph are joining forces with another “SNL” alum, Will Ferrell, on IFC’s upcoming series “The Spoils Before Dying.” Ferrell stars in the series as Eric Jonrosh.
IFC announced the casting, along with Haley Joel Osment, for the six-part comedy miniseries. Wiig and Osment were also involved in the first part of the “Spoils” franchise, “The Spoils of Babylon,” which aired in 2014.
The “Spoils” series is a spoof of epic TV miniseries such as “The Thorn Birds” and “Rich Man, Poor Man.”
The impressive cast lineup for “The Spoils Before Dying,” set to launch this summer, also includes Michael Sheen, Kate McKinnon, Val Kilmer, Tim Meadows, Steve Tom, Chris Parnell, Emily Ratajkowski, Andrew Daly and Chris Mulkey.
The project is written by Matt Piedmont and Andrew Steele.
