‘Black Jesus,’ a Series About the Messiah Living in Compton, Will Soon Premiere on Adult Swim

Here’s how I know I’m getting old: I remember “The Boondocks” when it was still in newspapers.

Aaron McGruder, the creator of the hilarious political/racial comic strip and cartoon series, will soon launch his latest project on Adult Swim and it looks like it should be pretty uncontroversial:

The new half-hour live-action scripted comedy finds Jesus living in present-day Compton, Calif., on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.

Black Jesus will premiere this year. A specific date and episode count have not yet been determined.

Sounds downright pleasant, though given McGruder’s sense of humor, it sounds like a project that’ll appeal more to atheists than Christians.
