South Park Gets Mobilized

Comedy Central’s Emmy-winning animated series, South Park, is coming to mobile phones this month through a new deal with Amp’d Mobile. This is the first mobile content deal for the irreverent toon comedy and the network’s other ratings darling, Chappelle’s Show, which will also be carried.

‘These deals further represent Comedy Central’s multi-platform strategy to deliver content anywhere, anytime,” comments Comedy Central exec VP and general manager Michele Ganeless. “With the mobile launch of South Park and Chappelle’s Show, two of the top-rated shows on our network, Comedy Central is leading the charge in the wireless entertainment content arena.”

In addition to video clips, mobile subscribers will be able to download South Park ringtones, ringbacks, voicemail, wallpapers and games at the Comedy Central Mobile Storefront.

Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park is now in its ninth season and remains the network’s highest-rated series. Comedy Central has renewed the show for at least three more years and will air 42 new episodes between now and 2008.
