LA Times on Salary Fight That Could End "The Simpsons"

by on October 5, 2011

The Los Angeles Times reports on the brewing salary battle that could bring Fox’s The Simpsons to an end after 23 seasons on the air. Fox is reportedly seeking a dramatic pay-cut to the actors portraying Springfield’s first family, declaring in a statement that it “cannot produce future seasons under its current financial model.” Each of the show’s primary actors receives “a mid-six-figure pay per episode,” while the show currently generates billions in rerun, DVD, and merchandise sales.
