Matt Groening, “The creator of ‘The Simpsons,’ is in talks with Netflix to develop an animated series,” according to one of the best reporters on the Hollywood beat, Variety’s managing editor for TV, Cynthia Littleton.
Littleton’s story continues, “Details of the project are being kept under wraps. Netflix is understood to be considering a two-season order of 10 episode apiece. That could be prompted by the long lead time needed for animation production.”
The story adds, “Netflix declined comment. A rep for Groening could not immediately be reached for comment.”
