South Park Creators Sign $900 Million Deal

Bloomberg breaks the story:

The creators of “South Park” have signed a new deal with ViacomCBS Inc. that will pay them more than $900 million over the next six years, one of the richest deals in TV history.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone will use the money to make new episodes of “South Park” for Viacom’s Comedy Central network and to create several spinoff movies for the company’s Paramount+ streaming service, the parties said Thursday. Their first project under the new deal will be a movie set in the world of “South Park” that will debut some time before the end of the year.

The deal with Parker and Stone is the clearest sign yet of ViacomCBS’s growing commitment to Paramount+.

Vulture and Gawker chime in.

How much money do you have in your bank account right now? And I have another question: How much money do you think Trey Parker and Matt Stone have already? CelebrityNetWorth.com says Trey Parker has $600 million, but it has to be more than that. It says Matt Stone has $700 million, but, again, I feel like the number has to be larger. I’m asking because the two South Park creators just signed a new deal with ViacomCBS Inc. where they’re getting $900 million to produce a bunch more South Park episodes and a bunch more South Park movies, and, oh my god — $900 million is so much money.
