Comedy Central is real ballsy, aren’t they?
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), the network 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.
Why am I guessing that the game that “Dad” (God) will be addicted to will be called “Praystation III” or something hacky like that?
Comedy Central’s new slogan is “Because it’s only sacrilege if you threaten to kill us over it.”
