    EL SEGUNDO, Calif., February 3 , 2008 — Popular Canadian comedy television series Trailer Park Boys has signed up for an exclusive hitch on DIRECTV’s The 101 Network beginning Feb. 5 with two new back-to-back episodes debuting every week on Thursday nights at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).

    DIRECTV will air all seven seasons (fifty-five episodes and two specials) of the hit half-hour show, a comedy cult classic that focuses on the misadventures of a group of trailer park residents, including two bumbling ex-cons who try to keep their marijuana business afloat in the fictional Sunnyvale Trailer Park and stay out of jail. Using a unique, documentary style film technique and scripted dialogue, the show features loveable losers Ricky, Julian and Bubbles as they stumble their way through life.

    “This is the funniest show I have ever seen,” said Eric Shanks, executive vice president of DIRECTV Entertainment. “If you’re a guy that loves quoting lines from movies like Tropic Thunder and Wedding Crashers, you’ll love Trailer Park Boys in its original and uncut version.”

    Trailer Park Boys won two Gemini awards for Best Comedy Series and Best Ensemble Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for stars Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, Mike Smith, John Dunsworth, Patrick Roach and Lucy DeCoutere among others. The series is created and directed by Mike Clattenburg (who also serves as the show’s head writer) and produced by Clattenburg, Barrie Dunn and Michael Volpe.
