Judd Apatow's 'Simpsons' script gets green light — 22 years later11/23/2012
Every great writer has to start somewhere — usually with a bunch of rejection slips and affordable wine. In 1990, when writer/director Judd Apatow was 23, he sent in his first script to a new animated sitcom called "The Simpsons." When the show's current executive producer Al Jean heard the now-famous writer and director mention it during a recent interview, the team rifled through the dumpster out back to find the episode. In the script, Homer becomes Bart's best friend after being hypnotized into thinking he's a 10-year-old boy. It will be produced soon as proof the long-running series is so desperate for ideas, it will even take rejected ones that are 22 years old. [Source]
