It's the Biggest and the Best Time to Tune in and Space Out! Get Ready for the World Television Premiere of the 'Futurama' Epic 'Into the Wild Green Yonder' Debuting on COMEDY CENTRAL(R) Sunday, April 26 at 9:00 P.M.*

"Into The Wild Green Yonder" Will Air As A Four-Part Epic, Beginning At 9:00 P.M.

NEW YORK, April 6 -- Greetings, Earthlings! The Emmy Award-winning animated series "Futurama" has landed at COMEDY CENTRAL and now it's time for the ultimate blast-off! Tune in for the out-of-this-world hilarious World Television Premiere of "Into the Wild Green Yonder," scheduled to debut as a four-part epic on Sunday, April 26, beginning at 9:00 p.m.

In the first-ever television debut, "Into the Wild Green Yonder" puts Fry and the Planet Express crew on the brink of a marvelous new Green Age. However, when ancient forces of darkness - three years older than time itself -- re-emerge to wreak havoc, will the "Futurama" crew be able to stop them? It certainly doesn't help that Bender's in love with a married fembot and Leela's on the run from Zapp Brannigan. The fate of the universe may be questionable, but fans can still look forward to guest appearances by illusionist Penn Jillette, hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, talk radio star Phil Hendrie and "Family Guy's" Seth MacFarlane. This is a far out, space-tastic journey COMEDY CENTRAL viewers are sure to enjoy.

The "Futurama" series focuses on the life of Philip Fry (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself December 31, 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life -- and a "diverse" new group of friends including Turanga Leela (Katey Sagal), a tough, but lovely one-eyed alien, and Bender (John DiMaggio), a robot who possesses human characteristics and flaws.

"Futurama" aired on Fox from 1999 to 2003 and the series consists of 72 episodes. It was nominated five years-in-a-row and won three Emmys, including its award for "Outstanding Animated Program" in 2002.

"Futurama" is produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox Television. The show was created and executive produced by Matt Groening with co-executive producers David X. Cohen, Ken Keeler and Eric Horsted.
