South Park

Saturday, Oct. 10 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT

School is back in session as SOUTH PARK returns with seven new, mind-altering episodes. With their finger on the pulse of pop culture and current events, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone promise to deliver a boat-load of laughs, yet again. And remember kids, each episode takes six days from idea to broadcast making it impossible to predict what hilarity SOUTH PARK is going to dish out every week.

After years of disrespect, Canadians go on strike and raise their middle finger to the rest of the world in an all-new uncensored episode of South Park, premiering Friday, April 18 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on The Comedy Network.

It’s the latest episode from the award-winning American series to direct its attention to the Great White North.

The head of the World Canadian Bureau leads the country into a long and painful strike and the responsibility of brokering a settlement rests with Cartman and the boys. Meanwhile, people from Denmark flock to the United States and cross the picket lines to take the place of the striking Canadians. In conflict over whether or not to stand with their countrymen, Terrance and Philip uncover the truth behind the outrageous cost of the strike.

“Canada On Strike” will be available on-demand at thecomedynetwork.ca, beginning Saturday, April 19.

They’re back and still uncensored baby! Last season the boys explored Tourette’s Syndrome, rose to Guitar Hero status and battled terrorists for control over the imagination of the American people. In this season, the four foul-mouthed friends from South Park are at it again! From life lessons and religious intolerance to sexual exploration and racism, Cartman, Kyle, Kenny and Stan will leave viewers disgusted, shocked, and as always, completely incapacitated with laughter. This season, Canadians won’t have to wait long to catch up to viewers south of the border. Season 12 premieres two and a half weeks after the U.S. premiere on Comedy Central.

“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have agreed to a three-season extension for cable’s top-rated animated series and entered into a momentous joint venture with COMEDY CENTRAL to create South Park Digital Studios, it was announced today by Doug Herzog, president, MTV Networks’ Entertainment Group, a division of Viacom’s (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B) MTV Networks. The strategic alliance includes the formation of a digital animation studio at “South Park” headquarters in Los Angeles that will serve as the new home for all digital extensions of the “South Park” franchise as well as an incubator for new animated projects.

“This extension and the formation of the joint venture are the beginnings of a new era for ‘South Park’ and COMEDY CENTRAL and a natural evolution of our long-term and prosperous relationship with Trey and Matt,” said Herzog. “With the new partnership in South Park Digital Studios and the creation of the digital animation studio, we have a tremendous opportunity to truly maximize the potential of the franchise and the incredible creative talents of Matt and Trey across every imaginable platform.”

“South Park” co-creator Matt Stone said: “Three more years of ‘South Park’ will give us the opportunity to offend that many more people. And since Trey and I are in charge of the digital side of ‘South Park,’ we can offend people on their cell phones, game consoles, and computers too. It’s all very exciting for us.”

As part of the agreement, Parker and Stone will produce an additional three seasons (14 episodes per season) of the Emmy(R) and Peabody(R) Award-winning “South Park,” taking the series beyond its current deal, which was set to expire at the end of 2008, to keep new episodes of the show on COMEDY CENTRAL through 2011. Parker and Stone will continue to write, direct and edit every episode of “South Park,” as they have since the premiere of the series in August 1997.

The joint venture of South Park Digital Studios seeks to respond to the new world in a new way. Its goal is to realize fully the potential of the “South Park” franchise and engage fans across all platforms, including exploring opportunities on gaming platforms (console, handheld, online) and a new online home for the series that will create a Web presence equaling the popularity and power of the series’ brand. SouthParkStudios.com, the long running official “South Park” fan site, will be expanded and become a major part of the new joint venture. The newly expanded site is scheduled to re- launch during the first quarter of 2008.

South Park Digital Studios will also include a multi-faceted and comprehensive production and development facility featuring an animation studio that will serve as a home for innovation, experimentation and groundbreaking animation for Parker and Stone, as well as other animators. COMEDY CENTRAL will have a first-look option on any projects developed at the studio.

The joint venture agreement with COMEDY CENTRAL was negotiated for Parker and Stone by their attorney Kevin Morris of Barnes, Morris, Klein, Yorn, Barnes & Levine. They are also represented by William Morris.
