Judd Apatow script for the Simpsons to air after 22 years


The  longest-running American sitcom and the director who has moulded 21st century film comedy in his own image are to team up, as it's been reported that the Simpsons will be turning a script written by Judd Apatow, director of Knocked Up, into an episode next year.

Apatow wrote the script - his first project - before he'd caught a break 22 years ago.

The story involves Homer undergoing hypnosis to believe he's Bart's age, before he then becomes Bart's best friend, reports Rolling Stone.

And now it's been picked up by the Springfield satirists. A match made in cartoon heaven?
