New York, May 8 (ANI): American cable and satellite television channel Comedy Central has announced that it is developing a half-hour animated show about a character named Jesus “JC” Christ.
The show will be about “JC” wanting to escape his dad”s considerable shadow to chill out in New York as a regular guy, only to find things have changed on earth over the last 2,000 years, reports the New York Post.
JC quickly discovers that he”s a fish out of water, and gets little sympathy from a “powerful but apathetic” God, who prefers playing video games to listening to junior blabbering about life in the city.
The potential series is being described as a “playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb”.
The announcement comes less than a month after Comedy Central”s controversial decision to censor an animated image of the Prophet Mohammed during an episode of “South Park”. (ANI)
