‘The Simpsons’ in Danger in 23rd year

In its 23rd year on TV, “The Simpsons” could be on the endangered species list.

The show’s producer said Tuesday that the show can’t continue under its current financial model.

That follows a report that big pay cuts are being sought for the actors who provide voices for Homer, Marge and Bart Simpson and the other characters.

Chris Alexander is a spokesman for 20th Century Fox Television. Alexander says the producer hopes for an agreement that allows the show to continue.

The Daily Beast reported that producers are demanding a 45% pay cut from the six voice actors.
