Today’s announcement represents the latest acquisition of a blockbuster television franchise for CraveTV. SOUTH PARK joins a stellar lineup of premium comedy streaming exclusively on CraveTV including: SEINFELD, CHEERS, THE BIG BANG THEORY, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, FRASIER, DEADBEAT, and more.
“SOUTH PARK is an iconic franchise and its exclusive acquisition is a milestone event for CraveTV and its subscribers,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Programming, CraveTV. “Comedy is wildly popular with the CraveTV audience, so we’re delivering another binge-worthy series in response to that demand.”
Throughout the series’ 18 seasons, Emmy® and Tony® award-winning creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker (The Book of Mormon) have affectionately made Canada a running punchline. In addition to parodying Canada as a country that is as bizarre as Oz. The series also features many Canadian references with all Canadians in the series featured with floppy heads and large mouths. In perhaps the most iconic Canadian-themed episode, Canada goes on strike to demand “money and more money” but is ignored by other world leaders, who bring in Danish people or the “Canadians of Europe” to fill in for the strikers. Other famous parodies include the Royal Wedding, in which the Princess of Canada is kidnapped by the “Canadian Giant” during the ceremony.
CraveTV features thousands of hours of premium TV programming, including HBO’s entire off-air library (THE WIRE, THE SOPRANOS, SEX AND THE CITY, ENTOURAGE, and more), as well as the SHOWTIME collection (THE AFFAIR, RAY DONOVAN, PENNY DREADFUL, and more), both exclusive to CraveTV.
