Welcome to Round Springfield! In this 20-episode limited series, Allie and Julia interview writers, directors, showrunners, and voice-actors from the Simpsons-verse on their various paths to working on The Simpsons – other projects, failed pilots, and beyond. This season, you can look forward to conversations with folks like Josh Weinstein, Tim Long, Yeardley Smith, and many more amazing Simpsons-folk.
First up, our conversation with David X. Cohen! He'll talk about getting his start on Beavis and Butt-Head. Plus, the struggles of getting Futurama made. Have you ever heard about Grandmaster Freak & the Furious 15? We've got you covered – David talks about the time he almost collaborated with rapper Ice Cube for that failed pilot.
And of course, we'll talk about The Simpsons – because the Simpsons always has a way of coming up. He'll pull back the curtain with some behind the scenes hi-jinks about the writers room.
