The Spoils Before Dying
IFC has ordered the six-part miniseries “The Spoils Before Dying,” a follow-up to this year’s satirical mini-series “The Spoils of Babylon” from Funny or Die. Like the last one, this will be a faux book-to-series adaptation from Will Ferrell’s fictional author Jonrosh.
This one is a 1950s detective story following a jazz pianist turned private eye who becomes embroiled in a murder investigation that spins out of control and leads him down paths he never expected. No cast has yet been announced, but a summer 2015 premiere is planned. [Source: The Live Feed]

New episodes will debut daily, Monday through Friday, airing four weeks after the Australian broadcast. The U.S. premiere week will include a guest appearance by actress and singer Paula Abdul. [Source: Deadline]
