Our friends at Boing Boing have an exclusive preview of How’s Your News?, a new MTV show produced by South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker that features reporters with physical and mental disabilities. The documentary news series debuts this Sunday night.
At first we were a little wary of their choice of network, but according to Stone, it was a deliberate decision:
“One of the first things that [director] Arthur Bradford said about doing How’s Your News as a TV show was that he absolutely didn’t want to pitch the show to Lifetime or PBS or anyplace else where you would EXPECT a show like this. He wanted to fly into the center of the sun and have the show on MTV. The How’s Your News crew is about redefining expectations and the show is by far their best work. It is my favorite show on television beside South Park…”
Watch the preview and let us know in the comments what you think. Warning: We got so sucked in that we sat through the entire five-minute clip. If you like what you see, check out a movie from the HYN? gang here that Parker and Stone financed a few years back.
