‘Superbad’ Writers to Script ‘Simpsons’ Episode
Various sites are reporting that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, co-writers of the recent comedy Superbad, are currently writing an episode of The Simpsons.
Much like most deals in Hollywood, the arrangement was initiated when the pair met Simpsons producer James L. Brooks at a party, made a connection (he liked Superbad), and then the pair wound up pitching ideas to the staff of the animated series. The episode is expected to air sometime next season, and Rogen could voice one of the characters introduced in the episode.
According to Rogen:
We went in and pitched them like five ideas and surprisingly hadn’t done some of them. And we all kind of settled on one in the meeting and then we went out and wrote an outline and they gave us notes on it.
