Mega South Park hub being developed for online fans

south parkIn addition to a recent contract signed by South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker than will have us enjoying South Park episodes through at least 2011, fans will soon have an online destination through which to enjoy (legal) South Park material.

The New York Times article doesn't go into a lot of detail about what sort of material will be available at this new destination, though fans should recognize the URL: SouthParkStudios.com, which has been the official site for the series for quite some time now. The article does mention the possibility of "new applications" for the characters (whatever that means) and new concepts that could evolve into brand new comedy projects. There was no mention of streaming full episodes, though, which I'm sure is what fans want most of all.

The bulk of the article focuses on the deal itself, which has Stone and Parker sharing ad revenue with Comedy Central, something that's not exactly common but is understandable when one considers the success of South Park over the last decade, and the fact that South Park helped boost the comedy network's ratings and revenue in its early years.

The fellas only work on South Park about twenty weeks out of the year, which leaves them ample time to turn this new online destination into something remarkable, including an animation studio for brand new projects.

Thanks to my pal Wild Bill for the news.

Wow has it been the air for 10 years........man that seems like such a long time. I remember when the Simpsons first aired. Now that was a long time ago.

I can't believe more South Park--the show has declined in every aspect since episode 100.
