Plot Synopsis

THE SPOILS OF BABYLON, a sweeping chronicle of the provocative exploits of the Morehouse family, is a parody of epic miniseries of the 1980s and 1990s. Patriarch Jonas Morehouse shepherds his daughter Cynthia and adopted son Devon from meager beginnings in the oil fields of Texas to powerful boardrooms in New York City. Cynthia and Devon, entwined in undeniable love, stumble through war-torn battlefields, blazing mansions, filthy drug dens and velvet-sheeted bedrooms on their quest for power and influence. And their merciless love sets into motion a wave of destruction that crashes down on Devon's mannequin wife Lady Anne, his daughter Marianne, his colleague and lover Dixie, Cynthia's hen-pecked husband Chet, her evil son Winston, the scheming Generals and far beyond. Plus, Eric Jonrosh, portrayed by executive producer Will Ferrell, opens and closes each half-hour episode, introducing the audience to the genius behind the brilliant adaptation of his best-selling novel, "The Spoils of Babylon."
