SOUTH PARK has (for many seasons now) had a story structure in which the inciting incident creates multiple sub-plots. The writers of the show realised that instead of having two or three stories that they then had to weave together for the climax, they could instead have one event and then have stories diverge from it and resolve each separately. If someone wanted to see how to build multiple stories off one event, the recent SOUTH PARK seasons would be helpful.
