NEW YORK -- The FXX network plans a marathon telecast this summer of episodes of "The Simpsons" -- all 552 of them consecutively.

The network said Wednesday the marathon will start Aug. 21 and continue into Labor Day. FXX programming chief Chuck Saftler said it coincides with the network's purchase of rerun rights and the development of an app that gives access to every episode of the long-running animated series.
