The creators of the South Park cartoons have signed a $900m (£646m) deal with US media giant ViacomCBS.

The agreement will see Trey Parker and Matt Stone make new South Park episodes for the Comedy Central network.

The pair are also set to create more than a dozen spinoff movies for Viacom’s Paramount+ streaming service.

The first project of the deal will be a South Park film scheduled for release later this year.

The agreement, which runs to the end of 2027, includes six seasons of the South Park TV show and 14 movies.
