Fox Says It Will Fight to Keep THE SIMPSONS on FOX After Disney Buys Them
As I outlined in another article, with Disney acquiring Fox, they are getting a lot of franchises including The Simpsons. The Simpsons is a big winner for Fox which is why it’s not surprising that they’re planning on fighting to keep the show on their network. It sounds like Fox is willing to part with the franchise, but they’re trying to keep Disney from moving The Simpsons to one of Disney’s networks like ABC. Dana Walden said:
Do you think Disney will let Fox keep The Simpsons on their network, or will Disney force it to ABC or one of their other networks? Looks like Disney has a big piece of leverage.
