Fox Threatens End of 'Simpsons' if Voice Actors Don't Accept 45% Pay Cut
 

 

The animated hit show is currently in its 23rd season, with 20th Century Fox Television saying: "We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model."

NEW YORK - The latest pay dispute between News Corp.'s Fox and the six principle voice actors on The Simpsons may bring an end to the hit show in the spring, the Daily Beast reported.

20th Century Fox Television executives are looking for a 45 percent salary cut, according to the report. If the cast doesn’t accept the reduction, the animated series, currently in its 23rd season, will come to an end in the spring, the studios executives have threatened, the Daily Beast said.

Pay issues are nothing new for the evergreen Sunday night show. Executives at 20th Century Fox have in the past sometimes suggested that they could replace current cast members with other voice actors if pay disputes don't get resolved.

A Fox studio spokesman had no comment late Monday night, the Daily Beast said.

"23 seasons in, The Simpsons is as creatively vibrant as ever and beloved by millions around the world," 20th Century Fox Television told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "We believe this brilliant series can and should continue, but we cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model. We are hopeful that we can reach an agreement with the voice cast that allows The Simpsons to go on entertaining audiences with original episodes for many years to come."

Fox network entertainment president Kevin Reilly recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the company is looking at options for the Simpsons after talk of a possible Simpsons network emerged.

"We're having conversations with [executive producer] Jim Brooks trying to figure out what the next chapter looks like," he said. "I certainly don't want it to be on my watch where we have to make that change."

it wouldnt be hard...considering teh premise has been the same now.....for about the last 13yrs....switch it up some. Lets see here.....the stewie and brian ep of family guy was one of the highest rated family guy ep ever.

All im saying is have them age some.......its the easiest way to bring in new voice actors...if they others wont take a a pay cut...hell its only like 4 or 5 main voice characters anyway....

i was talking to my friend the other day about the simpsons and i said to him they should do something to switch it up. i was thinking they could have a show called springfield and it incorporates all of the characters from the show and not just the simpsons family.

that decision is not on fox its on matt groening and the writing staff. they got a format that hasnt failed them in over 20years so do you think they really wanna take a gamble and try something different.

This... Funny thing is The Simpson is one if the primary reasons there is a Fox network... In the early days of Fox, The Simpson were their highest rated show.. Hell, without the Simpson, there would be no Fox News Network right now..
