From Leela's mouth to our wallets -- more Futurama!
There is more completely reliable information from someone who works there.
Leela from Futurama spoke on the talk show of Craig Ferguson, the British guy that comes on after Letterman. (She's better known in this century as the chick Locke on Lost is doing stuff with. Until, I presume, his daddy bops her in the noodle and Locke gets all crippled.)
Let us take a look at the words she said:
"We actually just signed a deal."
A deal! Hooray! In Hollywood, deals are contracts forged in blood that no mortal will ever sunder, just like marriage! Those new shows are as good as watched!
"It is going to be on Comedy Central"
Comedy Central! I like comedy!
"I think they are going to make DVDs."
Sweet hosannas! You mean we can see these for free and pay money for them?!
"They are making 16 or 13 episodes, I'm not sure."
16 or 13 slices of heaven! I may go blind!
For many rotations of our moons, we have awaited this. And now official word
comes from a human in a suit: Comedy Central will show the old show and 13
new ones starting in 2008. At this writing, that means two years remain
before we must change the channel from Cartoon Network. Please make a note
Cartoon Network will be fine. I'm sure there are 7,000 more episodes of
Bo-bo-bo Bo-bo-bo-bo-bo-bo-bo-bo Bo-bo.
