South Park: Those Boys Are Back, as Timely as Ever - New York Times

Cry me a river. Bet you don't hate it when you see your bank statement.

"Trey Parker has a confession to make. 'I've started confiding in people, other artists mostly, that I hate making 'South Park' and I always have,' he said during a recent visit to New York. He continued: 'It's super stressful. I'm always miserable. I want to kill myself every week.' Mr. Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of 'South Park,' will have that problem for at least the next three years. Over the summer, they signed an agreement with Comedy Central to produce the animated series about four foulmouthed Colorado boys through the end of 2008. (The monetary terms of the deal have not been released.)

But the show's enduring success does not mean that making 'South Park' has become any easier for its two creators, who met in college at the University of Colorado. Between them, Mr. Stone, 34, and Mr. Parker, 36, write, direct and edit each episode, and they give their voices to most of the main characters. The second half of Season 9 begins tonight at 10. (Mr. Stone and Mr. Parker produce seven episodes in the spring and seven in the fall.)"
