With people using their DVR’s and streaming shows online, there are very few times people are watching a show on T.V. live when it is first broadcast. That is why networks are using event television shows to drive viewers to watch live; event television shows are things like sporting events, awards shows, and now live musicals, things that need to be seen live so that you can take part in the discussion on social media and at work the next day. The next big thing in event T.V. is The Simpsons: Live!
That’s right. The Simpsons. Live.
The show that just keeps on pumping out season after season will be live on May 15th.
They will be doing it using motion capture technology. The same technology that made Andy Serkis Gollum in the Lord of the Rings, and turned James Spader into Ultron in the latest Avengers movie, will be used to turn Dan Castellaneta into Homer Simpson live on your TV.
Homer will also be answering listener’s questions on the show LIVE for both the eastcoast and westcoast broadcasts!
So now is your chance to ask Homer how he would fix the real estate market in Vancouver.
