South Side is Comedy Central’s aspirational and relatable scripted comedy set in and around the working class of the South Side of Chicago. It offers an authentic narrative of an often misunderstood community that is filled with humor and humanity.
South Side was created by longtime friends and creative collaborators Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle, both Late Night with Jimmy Fallon alumni. In our role as Music Supervisor, our intention was to dig deep into the rich and diverse roots of the sound of Chicago while exploring the vastness of the indie emerging artist scene. The end result is an eclectic tapestry of diverse sounds that pays homage to the windy city while bringing the lives of the characters to life.
