NEW YORK, July 1, 2002 -- "South Park" exposes the scandal inside the Catholic Church and shines the spotlight on Hollywood directors who insist on meddling with their classic films on the next two all-new episodes of "South Park" premiering Wednesday, July 3 and Wednesday, July 10 at 10:00 p.m. on COMEDY CENTRAL.
When the Catholic Church scandal negatively impacts church attendance in South Park, Priest Maxi travels to Rome to confront religious leaders about a solution. After intensive counseling about the issue, the boys try to understand why anyone would want to put something up their butts. "Red Hot Catholic Love" premieres Wednesday, July 3.
Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Tweek take on a cause close to their hearts when they realize that their favorite films are being enhanced, re-released and ruined in the process. Disappointed by the latest versions of such classics as "Star Wars" and "E.T.," their newly-formed club aims to stop certain famous directors from wrecking any more of their original masterpieces. "Free Hat" premieres Wednesday, July 10.
