‘Simpsons’ In Jeopardy Update: Producers Agreed To Pay Cuts

Yesterday we wrote about the future of “The Simpsons” being in jeopardy as Fox has declared the show being no longer sustainable under its current deal and demands a salary reduction or face a cancellation.

As of today, several top-level producers of “The Simpsons” have agreed to take pay cuts to keep the long-running animated show on the air.

The cast, however, have yet to agree to terms with the studio.

According to a report by Variety, Simpsons studio 20th Century Fox TV has demanded a 45 percent pay cut and the voice actors countered with a 30 percent reduction, plus a piece of the back end. The studio rejected that proposal.

All sides, however, strongly believe a deal will be reached. Even at a reduction is pay, everyone will still be making a lot of money, Fox, producers, voice talents and all. Plus, nobody wants to see “The Simpsons” end without a proper series finale and to let money be the cause of its demise.
