Adult Swim has green lit a half-hour live action comedy, Black Jesus.
The show will star newcomer Gerald “Slink” Johnson as Jesus living in present-day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.
Aaron McGruder, the creator of Black Jesus as well as the cult animated series The Boondocks, will serve as executive producer. McGruder has been working on this for sometime and the show was officially picked up after the Jesus race controversy back in December when Fox News' Megyn Kelly made comments stating that "Jesus was white."
The show is sure to kick up controversy.
