The series aired for five seasons on Fox (1999 to 2003), earning Emmy(R) nominations each season while winning three times, including "Outstanding Animated Program" in 2002. "Futurama," created by Matt Groening and developed by Groening and David X. Cohen, is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television, with Rough Draft Studios, Inc. contributing the animation.

Plus, his wizard office mate, Leonard, and demon boss, Twayne, don't make his life any easier. Whether he's avoiding his evil clone, being best man at a co-worker's long delayed wedding, or participating in an End of Days "Pre-Enactment", Mark experiences city life like no one has ever never seen before.
