The Boondocks creator is bringing Black Jesus to Adult Swim. This marks Aaron McGruder’s second late night comedy series.
Black Jesus will be a live-action, half-hour comedy that sees Jesus living today in Compton, CA. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s “on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.” Somehow, we doubt that’s going to go smoothly.
The series stars Gerald “Slink” Johnson (Grand Theft Auto V) stars as Black Jesus. Charlie Murphy(Are We There Yet?), Corey Holcomb (The Cleveland Show), Kali Hawk (Couples Retreat), up-and-coming comedian Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Andra Fuller (L.A. Complex) and John Witherspoon.
The new comedy is already in production, with an anticipated premiere scheduled for later this year
