When it was announced that Trey Parker and Matt Stone had opened their very own $300 million studio with the intention to produce whatever the eff they want I was pretty excited to see what would follow. Well, they’re definitely holding true to that promise.

The South Park creators are producing a fishing show hosted by Les Claypool of Primus and Dean Ween of Ween. The nitrous budget on this thing is going to be outrageous.

The ex-guitarist of the band Ween and lifelong Jersey Shore fisherman is prepping to shoot a pilot for a quirky TV series about saltwater angling. He’s going to embark on nautical adventures with fellow musician and fisherman Les Claypool of Primus.

“The show is personality-driven,” says Melchiondo, 42, a Trenton native. “The idea is to get the show on after Anthony Bourdain or Tosh.O. It’s a fishing show that you do not have to be into fishing to enjoy.”

When Melchiondo learned that the fishing show got the greenlight to shoot next month, it was a welcome bit of good news. Produced by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the series will fuse sportfishing with music and comedy, following Melchiondo and Claypool as they go out on the water with celebrity guests in different locales, including the Garden State.

What’s next? Wayne Coyne’s Wild Kingdom?

A show like this could only come about thanks to Parker and Stone. If anyone at the major networks were to produce, it would get twisted and perverted until it was unrecognizable. Before long, it would be Nick Cannon and the guy from Train hosting a dance party on a yacht.

“Having worked with several different studios over the years, we came to realize that our favorite people in the world are ourselves.”

That was the official announcement from Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they are moving ahead with plans to open their own $300 million production studio. Using their own money, they opened Important Studios which they will use to produce movie, television and theater projects. In other words, they’re going to start creating the type of projects they’ve always wanted to see, free of any studio involvement.

That’s not to say they ever copped to studio pressure in the past but I still get the feeling that the leash is off now. Should we go ahead and give them their own network? Might be nice to get out of the way now. (NY Times)

Good news in the sleepy mountain town of South ParkComedy Central announced today that it will be picking up the Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s sick creation for another three seasons, which locks it down through its 20th season in 2016. Even if we’re all going to be dead by then, it’s nice to know that the groundbreaking show will live on, making fun of hybrid vehicles and natural disasters long after we’re gone.

This should quash rumors (often propagated by Stone and Parker themselves) that they were getting sick of the series and their attention was turning to other projects, like their The Book of Mormon musical and maybe some sort of strange continuation of That’s My Bush! I wonder what changed their mind. Maybe it was the dumptrucks of money that Comedy Central drove up to their houses. Or the siren call of art.

But probably the cash.

Trey Parker And Matt Stone Working On A ‘Book Of Mormon’ Film… Eventually http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trey-parker-and-matt-stone-working-on-a-book-of-mormon-film-eventually/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trey-parker-and-matt-stone-working-on-a-book-of-mormon-film-eventually/#comments Tue, 13 Sep 2011 16:38:45 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=228170 Say your prayers and it might happen sooner.

Naturally, the success of The Book Of Mormon on the Broadway stage is leading to a big screen adaptation. But not so fast. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone confirmed that the film project is in the works with the show’s producer Scott Rudin on board and Parker in the director’s chair. “The great thing is, a lot of Broadway teams would have to go team up with a Hollywood producer and bring on a Hollywood director, but Trey’s a director and Scott’s a great producer. We’ve all made movies. So it’s kind of cool, it can stay in the same family.”

So, when can we expect to see it in theaters? Not until it’s done cleaning up on stage sadly. “Hopefully it will have a big run and a big tour and then we can do the movie in several years,” says Parker.

Bummer. Soon enough just isn’t soon enough. Can we get a Party Down or Arrested Development movie to tide us over in the meantime? We’re asking nicely. (EW)

‘South Park’ Isn’t Going Anywhere http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/south-park-isnt-going-anywhere/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/south-park-isnt-going-anywhere/#comments Wed, 20 Jul 2011 16:58:58 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=221075 Trey Parker and Matt Stone have signed on for two more seasons.

Many took the depressing end of South Park’s most recent episode “You’re Getting Old” to mean that Trey Parker and Matt Stone were done with the series and would find a new way to piss off Muslim extremists and Sean Penn. However, that’s not the case. The creators have just signed on to remain with the series through 2013.

However, there’s no word whether “You’re Getting Old” will set a new tone for the series going forward. It can be interpreted that Parker and Stone have grown wary of cynicism and will move the show in a less snarky direction. Or it could be that the episode was a one-off designed to spark debate. Either way, I’m sure that Adam Sandler movies will still look like shit.

South Park will return on October 5th with all new episodes. (Entertainment Weekly)

9 Greatest ‘South Park’ Ass Jokes http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-greatest-south-park-ass-jokes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-greatest-south-park-ass-jokes/#comments Wed, 27 Apr 2011 21:25:05 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209209 Since the show's inception, the anus has featured prominently in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's plot lines.

Tonight, the 15th season of “South Park” begins its run on Comedy Central. And in typical”South Park” fashion, the premier, titled “The HumancentiPad,” will use scatological humor to satirize current events and pop culture. Or, to put it another way, the show will be about iPads and poopy buttholes. But the episode, which combines Apple‘s iPad with the plot from The Human Centipede, is hardly the first to feature, for lack of a better phrase, “hot anal action.” Since the show’s inception, the anus has featured prominently in Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s plot lines. With that in mind, we’ve compiled the nine greatest ass jokes in the history of “South Park.”

Prehistoric Iceman – January 20th, 1999

In this episode, Steve Irwin (a.k.a. The Crocodile Hunter) travels around searching for animal anuses to stick his thumb into. Later in the episode, Irwin is killed, which might seem pretty insensitive, until you realize the episode aired seven years before his actual death. Of course, they did mock his death in a later episode, so I guess my point is moot.

The Death Camp of Tolerance – November 20, 2002

The subplot of this episode chronicles the adventures of Lemmiwinks, a gerbil who has been inserted into Mr. Slave’s ass. The ghosts of other unfortunate animals that have perished in Mr. Slave’s bowels attempt to aide Lemmiwinks in his escape.

The Entity – November 21, 2001

After his disgust with the hassles of air travel boils over, Mr. Garrison invents a new means of transportation. The only problem is, the driver of the new vehicle is forced to insert a rod up his anus. But while it may be uncomfortable, it still beats dealing with airports.

Cartman Gets an Anal Probe – August 13, 1997

This is the episode that started it all. By that I mean it’s the first episode of the series, and also the first episode involving the anus. And with a title like “Cartman Gets an Anal Probe,” it was easy to see where the series was headed.

Bloody Mary – December 7, 2005

“South Park” is known for it’s controversial topics, but this episode involving a statue of the Virgin Mary bleeding out its ass was so controversial that the studio would not let it air uncensored out of fear of a terrorist attack. Oh, wait. It aired without editing, and no one resorted to violence. I must have mixed up my religions.

What, What (In the Butt) – April 2, 2008

In this memorable episode, Butters sings Samwell’s “What What (In the Butt)” in an attempt to make a viral video. In my opinion, it’s superior to the original in every way.

Spontaneous Combustion – April 14, 1999

When Kenny dies (again) from spontaneous combustion, Stan’s father traces the explosion to a methane buildup. In order to mitigate the threat, the residents of South Park are then required to fart regularly. Fart jokes are always funny.

The Death of Eric Cartman – April 13, 2005

When Butters begins seeing visions of his supposedly dead friend, his parents seek medical help. Linking the visions to a traumatic event in Butters’ past, the doctors set out to discover the root of the problem…by shoving a giant robot arm up his ass.

Red Hot Catholic Love – July 3, 2002

In a fitting end to a list about anal scenes, this episode features Cartman shoving food up his ass in order to crap out his mouth. In the context of the show, it’s a metaphor mocking certain secularists for their condescending attitude toward religion. Out of context, it’s still funny because the poop comes out their mouths.

Bonus – Tonight’s Episode: The Human CentiPad

Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s new Broadway musical, The Book of Mormon, is being called a surprise hit. But anyone who is surprised by its success must not have been paying attention. It has been lauded by critics for dealing with dark topics such as AIDS and third-world genocide, while at the same time maintaining the irreverent yet surprisingly sweet tone of a classic Broadway show. But these are the hallmarks of Parker and Stone, who have been hard at work crafting their unique style for well over a decade. With songs such as “Everyone Has AIDS,” and “Hang the Bastard” under their belt, the transition to Broadway almost seems like an afterthought. But in honor of their success, I’ve compiled my 11 favorite Parker/Stone songs. If you don’t like my list, go fuck your uncle.

“Hang the Bastard” – Cannibal the Musical

Who else besides Parker and Stone could make a song about genital warts so damn catchy? OK, maybe Eazy-E, but he’s dead.

“Salty Chocolate Balls” -”South Park

While Isaac Hayes ended up leaving “South Park” on bad terms, his run with the show was hilarious. And while he’ll be better remembered for singing the theme from Shaft, I’ll always remember him for his “Salty Chocolate Balls.”

“Circle of Poo” – “South Park”

Not only is this Lion King spoof about talking shit hilarious, but it somehow manages to be genuinely heartfelt.

“Uncle Fucker” – South Park – Bigger, Longer, Uncut

This song from the South Park movie sets the stage for an epic battle between not only parents and television, but also the U.S. and Canada.

“Now You’re a Man” – Orgasmo

What makes a man? It’s probably the titties.

“Blame Canada” – South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut

As mentioned above, when the children of South Park begin using foul language, it isn’t long before their parents “Blame Canada.” This song was actually nominated for an Oscar, but lost out to Phil Collins.

“I’m So Ronrey” – Team America: World Police

In this song from Team America, Stone and Parker mock Kim Jong-il with a mix of puppets and Asian stereotypes. Offensive? Maybe. Hilarious? Definitely.

“Everyone Has AIDS” – Team America: World Police

Not many people can get away with mocking the AIDS epidemic. But as always, Parker and Stone manage to pull it off.

“America, Fuck Yeah” – Team America: World Police

This list probably could have been comprised of only Team America songs, but I wanted to have some variety. That being said, the jingoistic anthem that is “America, Fuck Yeah” is certainly some of their best work, bar none.

“Gay Fish” – “South Park”

In my book, any song that paints Kanye West as a dirty fish fucker should win a god damn Grammy.
