Judd Apatow Wrote a Spec Script For The Simpsons Right at The Start That Is Now Going to Be a Real Episode

(via TV Guide)

Only after a few episodes of The Simpsons had aired, Judd Apatow opted to write a spec script of the show and send it around. That was almost 25 years ago and it’s now going to be made into an actual episode.

This so rarely happens with spec scripts that are current, but Apatow’s stature in comedy and love of The Simpsons make a good case for this. 

So, almost a quarter of a century later, on Jan. 11th, Apatow’s dream of writing a Simpsons episode will finally come true.
