The executive producers are Lorne Michaels, Kelly, Schneider, Andrew Singer and Tony Hernandez. Produced by Comedy Central Productions, Jax Media and Broadway Video.
“South Side” follows two friends who just graduated from community college and are ready to take over the world. But until they do, they’re stuck working at Rent-T-Own.
