FOX has debuted the moody and grandiose trailer for upcoming The Simpsons tale “A Serious Flanders.” Harkening to some of television and streaming’s hottest crime dramas, the two-part “Simpflix” event airs this Sunday, November 7 and next Sunday, November 14 at 8/7c. Springfield is about to get a whole lot grittier — and not just because of all the donut crumbs.
“A Serious Flanders” features guest voice appearances by Brian Cox (Succession), Cristin Milioti (Fargo), Chris O’Dowd (State of the Union), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Jessica Paré (Mad Men) & Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds).
Synopsis: When Ned Flanders finds a bag of money and donates it to a local orphanage, he lands himself, and a very jealous Homer, in the crosshairs of a ruthless criminal debt collector who will stop at nothing to get it back. Sex, violence, pretentious needle-drops and superfluous flashbacks abound in this awards-thirsty attempt at prestige TV, on the all-new two-part episode of The Simpsons, “A Serious Flanders.”
