AdultSwim picks up new comedy by Aaron McGruder- "Black Jesus"

Always liked this guy, Aaron McGruder..used to literally clip his "Boondocks" cartoons out of the newspaper and tape to my office cubicle...just loved the realness and not so political correctness about his stuff.

reports:

*Adult Swim has given a series order to “Black Jesus,” a half-hour live-action scripted comedy from “The Boondocks” creator Aaron McGruder.

The show stars newcomer Gerald “Slink” Johnson (“Grand Theft Auto V”) as Jesus living in present-day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers, reports Deadline.com.

“Black Jesus” co-stars Charlie Murphy, Corey Holcomb and John Witherspoon. Production has begun in Los Angeles for a premiere later this year.
The series pickup for Black Jesus comes on the heels of the Jesus race controversy triggered by Fox News star Megyn Kelley’s recent “Jesus is white” comments.
