Heresy or hilarious? You be the judge.
Comedy Central is developing a cartoon series about Jesus Christ.
According to James Hibberd’s Live Feed blog, the half-hour animated show, "JC," will be "about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City. In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, ‘the ultimate fish out of water,’ tries to adjust to life in the big city."
The article says that "JC" is produced "by Reveille (‘The Office’), Henrik Basin, Brian Boyle (‘American Dad’), Jonathan Sjoberg and Andreas Ohman."
Other reports emphasized that "JC" is only in development and Comedy Central has not committed to airing the show.
