Trey Parker, co-creator of the award-winning animated series "South Park," first met Matt Stone at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Together their most recognized work, "South Park," the animated series which follows the misadventures of four irreverent grade-schoolers in the quiet, dysfunctional town of South Park, Colorado, recently started its 14th season on Comedy Central. "South Park" made its debut in domestic syndication on September 19, 2005 and continues with new episodes on Comedy Central.
In the summer of 1999, Parker and Stone released their critically acclaimed feature length film, "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," which was produced by Paramount Pictures. The film earned Parker an Oscar nomination, as well as an LA Film Critics Award, a NY Film Critics Award, and an MTV Movie Award.
In 2001, Parker and Stone created "That's My Bush!," a sitcom that made fun of sitcoms and portrayed the Commander in Chief as the lovable, often bumbling, main character.
Paramount Pictures released the feature film "Team America: World Police," which Parker directed, co-wrote, co-created, and produced along with Stone. The film, an action adventure starring an all-marionette cast, was released in October 2004.
Parker lives in the Los Angeles area.
