Jesus Christ cartoon in development at Comedy Central
Posted: 10:53 AM ET
Jesus Christ is regularly depicted as a supporting character on one of Comedy Central’s staple programs, “South Park,” but now he might star in his own animated series.

The network announced their programming plans for the upcoming year Thursday, and among some of the shows in the script development phase is a half-hour cartoon called “JC.”

The series would be about “JC (Jesus Christ) wanting to escape his father's enormous shadow and to live life in NYC as a regular guy. A lot has changed in 2000 years and he is the ultimate fish out of water,” according to a press release. “Meanwhile his all-powerful yet apathetic father would rather be playing video games than listening to JC recount his life in the city. JC is a playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb.”


It's important to note that script development is the very earliest stage a program can be in, said Comedy Central’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications Steve Albani in a statement to CNN.

In fact, this stage is so early, Comedy Central's Albani "wanted to emphasize that projects at the script deal level are several levels away from being greenlit to series and appearing on air ... most script deals do not even get a pilot order, the next step in the development process.”

Mohammad could be like the teacher from Charlie Brown. You can hear his voice but you'll never see him.

I hope Jesus plays baseball and rooms with the Alien and the Predator for a while.

And people would still be offended and outraged...
much like they probably already are with the shows concept anyway
