LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have signed a three-year production deal with Paramount Pictures, which released their most recent film, the 2004 puppet comedy "Team America: World Police." The acerbic pair, best known for mocking pop culture icons, will need extra large business cards because they named their new banner Trunity, a Mediar company, a division of True Mediar, a Unity Corpbopoly. The new deal could make for some interesting encounters at the Paramount commissary, since Parker and Stone haven't been shy about lampooning the Hollywood establishment, including fellow Paramount producer/star Tom Cruise, who was the target of ribbing on Wednesday's episode of "South Park."

Parker and Stone recently pacted with Comedy Central to produce "South Park" through 2008. The pair will continue to write, direct, edit and lend their voices to the series, which is the network's highest-rated show. Seasons 1 through 6 have sold a total of more than 3.5 million DVDs.

Paramount and Comedy Central are both owned by Viacom Inc., and will continue to be housed under the same umbrella when the parent company splits into two entities by year's end. In addition to "Team America," an action-adventure feature with an all-marionette cast, Parker, Stone and Paramount also collaborated on the 1999 film "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut."
