Mike Reiss appears at Politics and Prose at the Wharf on Monday, July 15, 2019 at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign SPRINGFIELD CONFIDENTIAL.
Mike Reiss has been a writer, producer, and show runner on The Simpsons, since the show’s debut in 1989. Join him for the newly-released paperback version of Springfield Confidential, a book he co-authored with Matthew Klickstein, as he pulls back the curtain on how the show works, and shares never-before-told stories about creating favorite episodes and characters. He’ll reveal why the Simpsons are yellow; how Lisa became one of the first “deep” cartoon characters ever; what it’s like to be in the writing room stuffed with funny guys (and one hilarious woman); what he’s learned after traveling to every country where the show is watched (many have The Simpsons, but not flush toilets); and lots of inside dish on the show’s animators, actors, and celebrity guests.
