You've never seen a show quite like this before. First conceived at Camp Jabberwocky, the nation's oldest sleepover camp for people with disabilities, MTV's "How's Your News?" began as a series of short films with the members of the camp serving as reporters. The shorts caught the eye of Matt Stone and Trey Parker, of South Park fame, who offered to Executive Produce a feature film that followed the camp reporters on a road trip across America. The film was widely embraced by the disabled community, won several film festival awards and is now used as a training video for people with disabilities worldwide.

Our 6 episode series has the adventurous spirit of "Jackass," combined with the music and quirky comedy of The Monkees. In their customized tour bus, our team of reporters drive across America documenting their experiences, which includes everything from covering the red carpet at the Grammys and performing at the SXSW music festival, to learning to make cheese balls with Amy Sedaris in her apartment. During the course of the show, we learn more about this unique cast and their outrageous sense of humor through man on the street segments, musical performances, behind the scenes adventures and celebrity interviews.

Since its inception in 1998, "How's Your News?" has built an enthusiastic cult following with the release of three previous documentaries and a CD of soundtrack music performed by the cast. The show enjoys the full support of the reporters' families as well as nationally recognized disability advocates and organizations. Earlier versions of the show, executive produced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have appeared on HBO/Cinemax, PBS and Channel Four England.
