The series follows Mark Lilly (voiced by Matt Oberg), a social worker at the "Department of Integration," as he helps new citizens, both human and "other," adapt to hectic life in New York City. There are easier tasks than weaning vampires off blood, socializing land-whales and housebreaking werewolves, but Mark is up to the challenge. Between his stressful job, a zombie roommate and a demon girlfriend, Mark's lucky if he can sneak in a few minutes of sleep. But who can sleep when there's a drop-dead gorgeous mermaid sitting at the bar?

David M. Stern, Series Developer and Executive Producer, began his career writing for "The Wonder Years" during its first three seasons. He went on to serve as a producer on "The Simpsons" during the first four seasons where he wrote many memorable episodes.

Stern and Daniel Powell are the Executive Producers of "Ugly Americans." Aaron Augenblick serves as Animation Director, with animation by Augenblick Studios and Cuppa Coffee. Lisa Leingang is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.

Currently, new episodes of "Futurama" air on Thursdays at 10:00 p.m. ET/T on COMEDY CENTRAL. The Emmy(R) Award-winning animated sci-fi comedy series made an out-of-this-world return on Thursday, June 24, 2010 with 2.9 million total viewers, becoming the highest-rated and most-watched season premiere for an animated series on cable with the exception of "South Park."

The series follows the life of Philip J. Fry (Billy West), a pizza delivery boy who accidentally stumbles into a freezer on December 31, 1999 and wakes up a thousand years later. In his future home of New New York City, Fry goes to work for the Planet Express Intergalactic delivery company, where he befriends Bender (John DiMaggio), a booze-fueled robot, and sets his romantic sights on Leela (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops who enjoys beating him up.

"Futurama," created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen, is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, with multi-Emmy(R) Award-winning Rough Draft Studios, Inc. contributing the animation.
