Comedy Central to tackle animated Jesus series

Just days after Comedy Central were in the firing line for the controversial inclusion of the Prophet Muhammad on South Park, the network is set to raise more eyebrows.

The network has unveiled their latest programming slate and in the mix is an animated series focussing on Jesus.

The series entitled “JC” will follow Christ as he attempts to escape from his “powerful but apathetic father” and attempt to forge a new life for himself in New York City.

“In general, comedy in its purest form always makes some people uncomfortable,” said Comedy Central head of original programming Kent Alterman.

Also on the Comedy line-up are similarly risqué plans for a show based around answering strange questions that can only be posed by those on some form of drugs and a project entitled Live Sex Show where the hosts explore “all things sex” in a comedic environment.
