Co-Creator, "South Park"
Trey Parker, co-creator of the award-winning animated series "South Park," first met Matt Stone at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Their most recognized work, "South Park," the animated series which follows the misadventures of four irreverent grade-schoolers in the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado, recently started its 16th season on COMEDY CENTRAL. "South Park" made its debut in domestic syndication on September 19, 2005 and continues with new episodes on COMEDY CENTRAL.
Stone and Parker collaborated on the award-winning Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon.” The musical religious satire opened in March 2011 with the book, lyrics and music produced by Parker, Robert Lopez and Stone. In its first year on Broadway, the musical received nine Tony® Awards, including Best Musical and Best Director for Parker; the New York Drama Critics Award for Best Musical; five Drama Desk Awards; four Outer Critics Circle Awards; the Drama League Award for Best Musical, as well as the GRAMMY® Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
In the summer of 1999, Parker and Stone released their critically acclaimed feature length film, "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," which was produced by Paramount Pictures. The film earned Parker an Oscar® nomination, as well as an LA Film Critics Award, a NY Film Critics Award, and an MTV Movie Award.
In 2001, Parker and Stone created "That's My Bush!," a sitcom that made fun of sitcoms and portrayed the Commander in Chief as the lovable, often bumbling, main character.
Paramount Pictures released the feature film "Team America: World Police," which Parker directed, co-wrote, co-created, and produced along with Stone. The film, an action adventure starring an all-marionette cast, was released in October 2004.
