HALIFAX, July 4, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian comedy trio of Robb Wells,
John Paul Tremblay and Mike Smith, also known as Ricky, Julian and
Bubbles, are thrilled to announce they have acquired the rights to the
'Trailer Park Boys' franchise from the show's original producers, Mike Clattenburg, Barrie
Dunn and Mike Volpe.
The 'Boys' are widely considered Canadian comedy icons and the
ground-breaking mockumentary series has lived in the hearts of fans for
more than a decade. Mike, Robb and John Paul are extremely excited to
announce to the fans around the globe that a brand new season of Trailer Park Boys is already in pre-production and will be available on their new
internet channel, SwearNet.com.
The acquisition does not include the recently completed third TPB
feature film, tentatively titled 'Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It'. However, aside from this third feature, the assets acquired include
all prior TV series, specials, the first and second feature films and
all their combined assets and underlying intellectual property rights.
Clattenburg, Dunn and Volpe are very happy Robb, John Paul and Mike will
continue the TPB brand. "While the three of us have moved on to
different TV and film projects, the Boys are the only ones with the
intimate knowledge and love of the show to keep Trailer Park Boys alive
and well," says Mike Clattenburg.
When informed the cameras would be returning to Sunnyvale to follow them
around again, the Boys made the following comment:
"The camera dicks are coming back? This is gonna be f#@*ed!!"
This is all sure to please fans worldwide who have been waiting
patiently to see the antics continue in Sunnyvale Trailer Park.
