17 Aug 2011
Tony Award-winning Book of Mormon authors Trey Stone and Matt Parker will give fans a glimpse into the creation of their Emmy-winning series "South Park" in a new documentary on Comedy Central.
Set to air Oct. 2 at 10 PM, the documentary is part of a year-long celebration of the hit animated series "South Park," which begins airing the second half of its 15th season Oct. 5 at 10 PM.
The documentary promises "an all-access pass to the behind-the-scenes world of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone at South Park Studios in Los Angeles through this special documentary, providing an exclusive, insiders look into the making of a 'South Park' episode."
Stone and Parker made their Broadway debuts this year with The Book of Mormon, the hit musical co-authored with Tony-winning Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez. All three writers earned 2011 Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score.
The Book of Mormon also picked up Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Direction (Parker and co-director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw), Best Performance by a Featured Actress (Nikki M. James), Best Orchestrations (Larry Hochman and Stephen Oremus), Best Scenic Design (Scott Pask), Best Sound Design (Brian Ronan) and Best Lighting Design (Brian MacDevitt).
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
