‘The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice’ documentary coming to FOX
Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me,” “30 Days”) is set to produce and direct The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice airing Thursday, January 14 on FOX. The documentary special will be the conclusion to the “Best. 20 Years. Ever.,” a year-long global celebration of The Simpsons that launched in January 2009 and culminates on the 20th anniversary of the series’ debut.
In The Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special in 3-D on Ice, Spurlock will examine the cultural phenomenon of the show in his distinctive and innovative style. The special will document how the world sees The Simpsons and how the Simpson family has seen the world for two decades.
“When they first called me about this, I thought it was a prank and I hung up,” said Spurlock. “And then my agent called back and said, ‘No, no, this is for real,’ at which point I fainted. Then when I woke up, I called everyone I knew because it was the coolest thing I could ever get to do in my career.”
