MIAMI – Oct. 23, 2015 – NBC UNIVERSO, the modern entertainment and sports cable channel for Latinos, today announced the premiere of South Park, the irreverent and unapologetic adult animated series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. South Park is the longest-running primetime scripted series in cable and is the first animated series to air on NBC UNIVERSO beginning Monday, October 26th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e48GT6wWCJM

The show revolves around four boys and their adventures in South Park, Colorado. The bold and controversial series parodies celebrities, news events and trending topics without remorse. Viewers have been tuning in for 19 successful seasons to see the crude humor and social satire that has made South Park a staple on Comedy Central. Now, as it debuts in Spanish for the first time in US television on NBC UNIVERSO, Latino audiences will be able to experience the comedy and satire that has made the series a success.

 “By adding South Park to our already bold programming lineup, NBC UNIVERSO is going where no other Spanish cable network has gone before,” said Arelys Carballo, Vice President of Programming. “South Park is a daring series that introduces an irreverent brand of comedy to our Hispanic viewers and adds an exciting twist to our lineup.”

Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the co-creators of South Park. Parker, Stone, Anne Garefino and Frank C. Agnone II are the Executive Producers of the Emmy® and Peabody® Award-winning South Park. Eric Stough, Adrien Beard, Bruce Howell and Vernon Chatman are Producers. Chris Brion is the Creative Director of South Park Digital Studios. South Park’s Web site is SouthPark.cc.com. http://southpark.cc.com/
