Gary Martinez, Production Assistant:
Welcome back dear readers!
Well, last week was the first episode of the fall season, and it’s seems to have divided America in two. Those who thought it was funny that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were shown graphically raping Indiana Jones, and those who just thought it was super-hilarious. I lean more towards the super-hilarious side myself, but that probably has something to do with the fact that South Park pays my bills (and how I feel about that monkey swing scene with Shia Lebouf).

Sorry, I haven’t introduced myself yet. My name is Kenny and I’ve been a fan of the show since I was 15, and I started working here as a PA last spring. This is me-

So, what’s new? Well, we’re preparing episode 1209 this week, entitled The Breast Cancer Show Ever. It involves Wendy threatening to beat up Cartman, which causes a stir, seeing as how a girl could never fight a boy and win.
The most interesting thing for me to see while working here is how fast these things are produced. From the beginning of writing the script, to the air date, it’s literally less than a week. The writing process begins on Thursday and the tape arrives to Comedy Central on Wednesday (merely a few hours before airing). And this is an animated show!
I don’t know how it’s possible to get a show together this fast, but I think it has something to do with the extremely talented producers, editors, sound department , storyboard, IT, animation, lip-sync, consultants, voice talent and digital studio departments that we have on staff here.
Did I mention the PA’s? We also have the finest PA’s here that anyone has ever seen!

Me - beat Michael Phelps in arm wrestling.

Whether it’s getting a new LCD screen clear view model CV24 video engine for John, our engineer, or going to Taco Bell for Trey. Nobody does it faster, or sexier, than the PA’s here at South Park.

Great Blog Kenny, :zombiekenny: :unhoodedkenny: I am from Colorado so I have a special place in my heart for South Park , Trey and Matt. I love hearing how the production process works. Its fascinating and you are working for the best show on TV by far. My friends and I here at work wait rabidly for the new episodes. During the season Wednesday nights are the best in the week. Can't wait for tonight's ep.
Keep up the good work

BIG FAN

Hey South Park PAs! I also have been a huge fan of South Park since I was 15 and I absolutely would love to work there at South Park Studios!

Please, if there are any openings, let me (or us) know! It would really be a blessing to work with the South Park crew!

I look forwards to tonight's episode and more PA blogs!
