Jesus ‘JC’ Christ coming to Comedy Central

New York: American cable and satellite television channel Comedy Central has announced that it is developing a half-hour animated show about a character named Jesus ‘JC’ Christ.

The show will be about ‘JC’ wanting to escape his dad’s considerable shadow to chill out in New York as a regular guy, only to find things have changed on earth over the last 2,000 years, reports the New York Post.

JC quickly discovers that he’s a fish out of water, and gets little sympathy from a "powerful but apathetic" God, who prefers playing video games to listening to junior blabbering about life in the city.

The potential series is being described as a "playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb".

The announcement comes less than a month after Comedy Central’s controversial decision to censor an animated image of the Prophet Mohammed during an episode of ‘South Park.’
