Creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening, is responsible for this new animated series, Futurama.

Set in the year 3000, the series follows Fry (voiced by Billy West), a 25-year-old New York pizza delivery boy whose life is going nowhere. When he is accidentally cryogenically frozen on New Year's Eve 1999 and awakens an entire millennium later on New Year's Eve 2999, he has a chance to make a fresh start.

The future in which he finds himself is full of airborne freeways, rocket ships, talking heads in jars, dangerously addictive soft drinks and Stop 'n' Drop suicide booths, which allow customers to choose their mode of death, from 'quick and painless' to 'slow and horrible'. Fry, fortunately, soon meets up with Bender (voiced by John DiMaggio), a totally corrupt, hard-drinking, cigar-smoking, pornography-reading robot, and Leela (voiced by Katey Sagal), a beautiful, one-eyed alien martial arts expert, to help him make sense of this new environment.

Initially Fry's Fate Assignment Officer, Leela leaves and runs off with Fry and Bender, and the three of them find themselves joining Planet Express, an intergalactic courier company.
