“The Simpsons” producers agree to pay cuts, sources say


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Have “The Simpsons” been spared?

While contract negotiations with voice talent threatened to end the animated program after a staggering 23 seasons, it’s now being reported that multiple top-level producers “have agreed to take pay cuts” to help keep the show on the air.

“Some — though not all — of the producers of the Fox series have indicated they’re willing to have their pay reduced to continue the series beyond its current record-setting 23rd season,” EW.com reports. “The cast, however, have yet to agree to terms with the studio.”

20th Century Fox TV was looking for a 45 percent pay cut from the talent, without which the show literally could not go on. The voice actors reportedly countered with a proposal that would amount to a 30 percent reduction in salary, but would include a bigger piece of the back end. That proposal was rejected by the studio.

As EW.com says, though, all sides “strongly believe a deal will be reached,” so now it’s just a matter of when.
