On Thursday, September 19th @ 9 pm ET only on ABC, we’re getting a two-hour documentary entitled The Last Days of Phil Hartman. It’s been 20 years since Phil was part of a grisly murder-suicide that took one of the funniest to ever do it off of this planet. Phil is best known for not only his stellar work on Saturday Night Live, but he was also a long-time voice on The Simpsons most notably as Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz.
As part of the documentary, executive producer for The Simpsons, Al Jean, will make sure Phil’s importance on the longest-running animated series in primetime is well-known. We can only guess where Phil would be today had he not passed, but I’m willing to bet he’d still be on The Simpsons.
Watch a trailer below for Thursday Night’s special premiering next week.
