Can Comedy Central Upset Conservatives Without South Park? Sure, With a Jesus Cartoon

C’mon, now Comedy Central is just taunting the Parents Television Council: The network has the animated cartoon series JC in development. “It depicts Christ as a ‘regular guy’ who moves to New York to ‘escape his father’s enormous shadow.’ His father is presented as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life.” You really want buzz, Comedy Central? Give Jesus a Wall Street boyfriend who moonlights as a Hell’s Kitchen drag queen.
