Comedy Central(R) and Matt Groening Announce the Launch of the "Futurama Head-In-A-Jar Creator" App

Free App For iPhone And iPod Touch Allows Fans To Create Their Own "Head-In-A-Jar" With Literally Millions Of Human, Robot And Alien Possibilities

"Futurama" Airs All-New Half-Hour Episodes Thursdays At 10:00 P.M. On COMEDY CENTRAL

NEW YORK, July 23, 2011 -- Matt Groening, creator of the Emmy(R)-Award-winning series "Futurama," today announced the launch of the "Futurama Head-In-A-Jar Creator" App during the show's panel at Comic-Con. The free App - developed in a collaboration between COMEDY CENTRAL, the producers of "Futurama" and Rough Draft Studios - allows fans to design their own Head-In-A-Jar, a popular recurring feature of the show. The "Futurama" App was released simultaneously with Groening's announcement and is now available for download on iPhone and iPod Touch.

"The 'Head-In-A-Jar' App is an interactive playground for fans," said Michele Ganeless, president, COMEDY CENTRAL. "The new App truly celebrates the show and gives fans a great place to enter and experience the world of 'Futurama.'"

"In the future, we'll all be heads in jars," said Groening. "But right now we can live this utopian fantasy in cartoon form."

The new App is loaded with a wealth of features. The "Head-In-A-Jar Creator" feature allows users to jump into the animated world of "Futurama" and create their own customized character. Users can choose from a male or female human, robot or alien, and customize many traits including the eyes, nose, hair, blemishes and background. Original artwork and sound design were created by the Futurama team specifically for the App. Additional features include "Futurama"-themed accessories, such as a foil hat, Flexo's beard, Nibbler's antenna and a customized name plate for each head designed. Once a Head is created, users can upload it to Facebook and Twitter and share with friends. Users can also save them to their photo gallery, set as their wallpaper or as an icon for one of their friends' contacts.

"The Head Museum" is an innovative feature that allows fans to create customized exhibits of all their Head creations. Users can then curate various groups (e.g. family, friends, co-workers, favorite sports team) to display the Heads. Users can also share these Exhibits on Facebook and Twitter.

Additional App features include streaming clips from the current season of "Futurama" airing on COMEDY CENTRAL.

"Futurama," returned with 13 all-new half-hour episodes beginning Thursday, June 23 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.

"Futurama," created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen, is a Curiosity Company production in association with Twentieth Century Fox Television. Rough Draft Studios, Inc. is the animation studio.
