Fox Press Release - July 15, 2004
Original Episode to Air Following Superbowl XXXIX
Seven-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Warren Sapp; NBA All-Stars Yao Ming and LeBron James; Olympic figure-skating medalist Michelle Kwan; TV/film stars Ray Romano, Kim Catrall, James Caan and Joe Mantegna; rapper 50 Cent; famed architect Frank Gehry; and author Thomas Pynchon are among the upcoming guest voices on THE SIMPSONS airing Sundays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Entering its 16th season, THE SIMPSONS has become the longest-running primetime scripted series on television.

If you thought last year's Super Bowl half-time extravaganza was wild, see what happens when Homer is
running the show! In THE SIMPSONS post-Super Bowl XXXIX episode, "Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass"
airing Sunday, Feb. 6, after Homer inadvertently performs a wild crowd-pleasing dance at a local carnival,
he is hired by several prolific sports figures including James, Sapp, Ming and Kwan, guest-starring as
themselves, to choreograph their victory dances. After his dances prove successful, Homer is tapped to
choreograph the Super Bowl halftime show. Panicked the night before the event, Homer enlists the help
of his neighbor, Ned Flanders, and together they put on a non-violent, deeply meaningful halftime show
that America chastises for its blatant display of decency.
THE SIMPSONS is a Gracie Films Production in association with 20th Century Fox Television. James L. Brooks, Matt Groening and Al Jean are the executive producers. Film Roman is the animation house.
