Can’t Miss ‘Futurama’ Live Chat Wednesday!

Futurama-Live-150

For the first time ever, the creators and cast members of Comedy Central’s hit sci-fi/comedy toon Futurama will participate in a live-stream chat to discuss all the behind-the-scenes mayhem on this subversive series. The half-hour discussion, dubbed Futurama Live!, will feature creator/exec producer Matt Groening, exec producer David X. Cohen and cast members Billy West, John DiMaggio and Maurice LaMarche.

The gang will kick off following the Wednesday night airing of new episode “Zapp Dingbat” (check out a preview clip below) with a discussion of this latest adventure, which guest stars George Takei. They will also answer fan questions and offer an exclusive look at the July 18 episode “The Butterjunk Effect” as well as to-be-disclosed future episodes. West will also amuse viewers by performing several Fry Memes.

Futurama Live! will take off Wednesday, July 11 at 10:30 p.m. on the show’s webpage (www.cc.com/shows/futurama), Facebook page (/Futurama) and Ustream. Fans can submit questions via Facebook, Twitter (@ComedyCentral) or at Answerama, the show’s page on the Sci-Fi & Fantasy Stack Exchange. Fans are also encouraged to submit Futurama art that may be featured during the broadcast, and will have a chance to win special giveaways.

    Leela’s mom is dating Zapp Branagan. Well that should definitely make for an interesting episode. The clip shown here is hilarious as of course Kif is right about Zapp using the universal translator. Without these random things Futurama just wouldn’t be the same. Tonight’s episode will be airing on Comedy Central while I’m at work so a Dish co-worker suggested trying out the remote access app. It allows me to stream live TV or anything I’ve previously recorded to my iPad through my Sling Adapter and it works great with the Hopper. Tonight on my lunch break I’ll be watching the show, awaiting the scene about the Treaty of Table Seven. Now I can watch every episode on the train ride home on my iPad.
