Chef Returns For South Park Premiere
LATEST: TREY PARKER and MATT STONE have filmed a last-minute episode of SOUTH PARK in response to Scientologist ISAAC HAYES' request to be released from his contract because the show mocked his religion. The creators are launching the tenth season of the series on US network Comedy Central on Wednesday, (22MAR06), with an episode featuring Hayes' character CHEF. Because South Park episodes only take six days to create, Stone and Parker were able to react to the current controversy soon after it happened. According to a Comedy Central press release, the show will feature, "The triumphant homecoming of school chef JEROME MCELROY. "While STAN, KYLE, KENNY and CARTMAN are thrilled to have their old friend back, they notice that something about Chef seems different. "When Chef's strange behaviour starts getting him in trouble, the boys pull out all stops to save him."
