Homer Simpson: This Is Your Wife

From the New York Post:

November 1, 2005 -- ATTENTION Homer Simpson: you may have already lost your beloved Marge to British comedic icon, Ricky Gervais.

The creator, writer and star of the original BBC version of "The Office" says Fox is putting the finishing touches on an episode of "" that he wrote and appears in as a guest star.

The soundtrack and voices for the show are done, Fox sources say, but the episode will spend the next few months being animated.

In "Homer Simpson: This is Your Wife," expected to air next spring, the Simpson family visits Fox's California studios.

At the Fox studio lot, the Simpsons see things like a Mischa Barton statue, and Homer gets to meet Dan Castellaneta from "The Tracey Ullman Show." Castellaneta has been the voice of Homer since "The Simpsons" first appeared as short animated sketches on "Tracey Ullman" in the late 1980s.

Then at Fox, Homer and Marge wind up on a reality show called "Disparate Housewives" to try to win money for a big-screen TV.

Homer gets saddled with a nasty, belittling Yale professor who is married to Gervais' character, Charles.
