'Simpsons' plans for funny future

Saturday, January 15, 2000

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

"The Simpsons" marked its 10th anniversary yesterday, but the people behind the Fox comedy are busy planning for the future.

In upcoming episodes, Bart thinks he may be a faith healer, the Simpsons house-sit for Mr. Burns, Bart and Homer get race horses, and someone in Springfield dies during February sweeps. May's season finale will parody VH1's "Behind the Music" series with "Behind the Laughter," a phony history of the Simpsons.

"We're basically treating them like the Nelson family," said executive producer Mike Scully, "like Ozzie and Harriet, like they were a real family who happened to get their own TV show. It'll take you behind the scenes through all of their success and the backstage battles and Homer's addiction to painkillers."
