It seems Kristen Wiig is even busier now that she’s no longer on Saturday Night Live. In addition to her multiple film projects – Despicable Me 2, The Skeleton Twins, Hateship Loveship, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, How to Train Your Dragon 2, The Comedian and Girl Most Likely (which she produced) – Wiig will star alongside Tobey Maguire and Will Ferrell in the Ferrell-produced comedy miniseries The Spoils Of Babylon on IFC.

In the six-episode series, Ferrell will play the Shah of Iran while Maguire will play Devon Morehouse, an orphaned child raised by an oil magnate; Wiig plays the magnate’s daughter, Cynthia, according to Deadline.

Wiig will next be seen hosting SNL on May 11.
