How do I email ideas for episodes to the South Park Creators

Postby jimmeh2025 » Sat Jan 12, 2008 5:28 am

I want to know how to email an idea to the people who think up South Park themes for their episodes. Thanks if you can help. If not, and it's obvious, don't diss me.

Short answer: You don't.

I've ever heard of any show that ever accepts episode ideas from outside sources. There's probably a lot of reasons for this, but I can think of a couple off the top of my head:

1. They have a writing staff already in place that is paid to do exactly that. The writers are under contract, and possibly in a union, both of which would prevent any outside ideas being accepted.

2. By accepting ideas from outside of show staff, they are setting themselves up for all kinds of plagerism and other lawsuis. People seem happy to share their ideas until they think that someone is making money off of their ideas.

Unless they find you and hire you as a writer, there's no way to do it. Thanks for reading.

If they don't get ideas from other people then why do we post our ideas on this website?

You mean you seriously thought that SP staff read and take ideas from those posts?

Getting ideas from a bunch of idiots and asswipes (no offense) is what George W. Bush does, not Matt and Trey.

People post them for their own entertainment.

Because we want to share them with other fans, natch. :) And we have a forum for them because we like to be neat around here.

south park is a great show and they've obviously haven't had any problem coming up with great ideas for the show. leave it up to the writers to write. you're a viewer. go view.

It would be good, I had a lot of ideas! I know it's not possible. :P

Well, it's better they give Kenny more lines and actions todo or they'll lose many fans, he's one of the main four boys and is very loved.

I still watch because I love South Park at all, even if I didn't like the 10th season.

What do Keanu Reeves, Anakin Skywalker and Kenny have in commom? They're the chosen one.
