"Simpsons" Producer to Visit Campus

OGDEN, Utah – Mike Reiss, the Emmy Award-winning producer of "The Simpsons," will speak at Weber State University at noon Feb. 12 in the Shepherd Union Ballroom.

During his 11 seasons on the show, Reiss penned a dozen scripts and produced more than 200 episodes for one of the longest-running series in television history – which, as he'll discuss, almost didn't make it on the air. Reiss will share insights from his time spent working behind the scenes with Homer, Bart, Krusty and the other off-beat characters that populate the animated world of Springfield, U.S.A.

Reiss' appearance is part of WSU's convocations lecture series and is free to the public. For more information, call 801-626-6349.
