After 23 years on the air, the Simpson's may be in danger of being cancelled if the voice over actors and the studio cannot agree to a contract. Currently the actors receive $500K per episode but do not get a cut of any backend cash that comes in from syndication or merchandising. The studio, 20th Century Fox, is looking for the cast to take a 45% pay cut. The cast is willing to accept a 30% pay cut with the added bonus of a cut of the ancillary benefits. If the two sides cannot reach an agreement, the show may be doomed.
