This concerns issues in both the Anchovy thread and the "sad news" thread so I didn't know where to put it. I recently emailed David X to get some rumors cleared up as well as ask a few general questions....and he actually responded, woohoo! Here's his email (he put in bits of my emailto him and responded):
Hello, Chelsea! Sorry for the delay in responding. I only check this e-mail once in a while, and respond to a few random messages as time permits. You got lucky!
Recently there's been a fairly big campaign involving writing letters to Gail Berman and other high up people as well as a sillier, more fun, campaign in which Angry Norwegian Anchovy tins will be sent to Fox's PO Box. This movement, loveingly called Anchovies For Fry or AFF, is planned to happen around august 10th.
It can't fail!
The thing is, we always thought it was the network standing in the way of new episodes. We recently heard from someone who worked at Fox that the network was interested in buying more episodes and that because The Simpsons will be ending soon Matt demanded the 8:00 timeslot but they wouldn't give it to him and that was that. Matt wouldn't accept 7:00 again. Obviously 7:00 isn't when the show should be on but aren't new episodes worth more than that? Is there more to it than that? Is there any truth to this at all?
What about a movie? Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
We'd love to make a movie as well as new episodes of the show. The only problem I know of is finding someone to pay for them!
Good luck with the anchovy campaign. May the Angry Norwegian smile upon you. Or frown... whichever is better.
Cool huh? Sorry if I'm a little incoherent, I have a crush on David and I'm pretty giddy right now. Also I've never started a thread before so sorry if it's crap.
EDIT: woah, I didn't see the end of the sad news thread before opening this one, well, call me a n00b.
