Futurama, the sci-fi parody series created by Matt Groening and David X. Cohen (The Simpsons) which ran on Fox from 1999 to 2003, will be returning with a series of direct-to-DVD features. The cast announced at the San Diego Comic Con that the first of these, Bender’s Big Score, will be released on November 27. The plot involves Internet scammers and the secret to time travel- which apparently lies on Fry’s ass. Al Gore- whose daughter was a writer on the original series- will make a guest appearance. Reruns of the series will move from Adult Swim to Comedy Central in 2008- these reruns will also include the DVD features, cut into four episodes each.
