"My story is an epic one, this is my life, or what remains of it," Tobey Maguire says in voiceover in the video below. "The Spoils of Babylon" follows the Morehouse family. There's patriarch Jonas Morehouse (Tim Robbins), his daughter Cynthia (Kristen Wiig) and adopted son Devin (Maguire), who go from meager beginnings in Texas to boardrooms of New York City. But in true soap opera fashion, Cynthia and Devon share an undeniable love that takes them on quite a journey.

The six-part saga also stars Jessica Alba, Will Ferrell, Jellybean Howie, Val Kilmer, Haley Joel Osment, Michael Sheen and Steve Tom with a cameo by David Spade and the voice of Carey Mulligan.

The Spoils of Babylon premieres with two back-to-back half-hour episodes on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 10:00 p.m. EST on IFC.
