Trey Parker Nixes Reports of Musical Version of SOUTH PARK

At the this weekend's TCA event, Hulu head of content Craig Erwich announced the news that the streaming website will offer exclusive steaming rights to the animated series SOUTH PARK, from creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

"South Park ranks in our top 10 shows each month and hits the sweet spot for our demo," said Erwich, "We'll have every season of the series."

In support of the announcement, Parker and Stone themselves made a surprise appearance at TCA. "We worked with the Viacom player a few years ago," explained Stone, "and there would be glitches and bugs following the upload of South Park. However, Hulu was out of the gate fast and had a better player. We looked at their player with envy, and we always wanted to have the best possible platform for our show."

The duo was also asked if they would consider following up their hit, Tony Award winning Broadway musical Book of Mormon with a musical adaptation of their animated series. "No, we're not going to do a musical version of South Park," affirmed Parker.
