What backbone the execs at Comedy Central have! Mohammed’s off limits, but Jesus? Nah…
From The Live Feed:
Comedy Central developing Jesus Christ cartoon
Comedy Central might censor every image of the Prophet Muhammad on “South Park,” yet the network is developing a whole animated series around Jesus Christ.
As part of the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), Comedy Central is set to announce “JC,” a half-hour show 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.
Pretty tasteless. Worth bombing Comedy Central over? Nah.
