Season 28 News: Details about “The Caper Chase” have been revealed

More news have been revealed about the Season 28 episode “The Caper Chase“.

The story’s plotline is a satire of Donald Trump and Trump University.

The personal financial guru Suze Orman, the American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and the creative writing instructor Robert McKee will teach at Mr. Burns’ new school.

Al Jean says to TVLine: “We have a great episode where Burns goes to Yale and discovers, much to his horror, how politically correct it is, so he starts his own college, Burns University, which is similar to another billionaire’s university you might have heard of lately.”

Al Jean also mentions Trump is aware of his Simpsonised version: “There’s a photo of him signing a poster which was [made from] the first spot we did on him a year ago, which was not so flattering, but he’s autographing it for somebody. I think his problem is that he doesn’t like criticism, but of course, he’s opened himself up for more than any human will ever get in all of history.”

Season 28 News: More news on The Great Phatsby have been revealed

Season 28More news on the one-hour special episode, set to premiere in January 2017, The Great Phatsby, have been revealed.

The plot will follow the one from the novel of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Homer will be the Nick Carraway of the episode as a narrator. Matt Selman, the show’s executive producers says: “Burns is an old-school Gatsby and Jay G is a new-school Gatsby, and their mutual Gatsbyism brings them together. Part 1 of the show I would subtitle as ‘The Betrayal,’ and Part 2 I would subtitle as ‘The Revenge.’ It’s kind of like a two-part rap album.”

The Empire music producer Jim Beanz created the songs for the episode.

Matt Selman adds: “This was just going to be a regular episode, but the table read went so well, in a fit of passion and excitement and ambition and excess, we decided to supersize it. And we haven’t done a huge amount of stories in the world of hip-hop and rap culture, so we just went for it.”

Much of the episode is set at Burns’ summer mansion in the Springfield Hamptons, and later in the episode Henson joins in. Selman continues saying: “She plays a Simpsons version of Cookie. She teams up with Burns and Homer and Bart and our all-star team of rappers to help get revenge on Jay G.”

Subplots to the episode feautures a rich boy trying to date Lisa, Marge opening up a boutique shop and Smithers being on a perileous journey.

Selman concludes “It’s a tale of greed, excess, betrayal, revenge, and ruthlessness, and there’s a hilarious goose in it. The goose is really funny.”
