Hello all, Jana here,
You might think you’re awesome when you sit down for a marathon viewing of say the ‘Star Wars‘ films or you might get adventurous and pick ‘The Lord of the Rings‘ director’s cut trilogy. Even, I, myself have watched several seasons of ‘Supernatural‘ at one time, every summer leading up to the debut of the new season. Aren’t traditions just the best?!
We reported back in April that the premiere showing that takes place when FXX hits the airwaves is going to be the longest running marathon in all of TV History. Read that article here. What show could even come close to having that many episodes to run so long it breaks a record? Well, duh, it’s ‘The Simpsons“! FXX will begin it’s broadcast with season one of the animated comedy, including ‘The Simpsons Movie‘ all in chronological order from 10 a.m. August 21 through September 1 at 12 a.m. I know I couldn’t make it that long!
Once the new begins to wear off of the fledgling channel, they will launch ‘Simpsons World‘ in October. It has been described as “the ultimate ‘Simpsons’ digital experience” allowing authenticated viewers to have on-demand access to every ‘Simpsons’ episode through www.simpsonsworld.com and the FXNow apps on many movile phones, tablets, smart TVs and a variety of other devices. Using the site, fans will be able to create personalized playlists, share clips and explore the town and people of Springfield.
Basically, this is going to be an all Simpsons channel. At least that’s what it sounds like to me. After the big marathon watch, FXX is going to be planting mini-marathons every Sunday from 4 p.m.leading up to the show’s new broadcast on Fox at 8 p.m.
I’m betting a good chunk of money was transferred and all involved found this agreeable, Gracie Films Production, 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers.
