Adult Swim has announced that they have greenlit a new half-hour live-action scripted comedy called "Black Jesus" from award-winning writer/producer, Aaron McGruder ("The Boondocks," Red Tails ). The show finds 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. The series stars newcomer Gerald "Slink" Johnson ( Grand Theft Auto V ) as Black Jesus, and also stars Charlie Murphy ( Are We There Yet ), Corey Holcomb ("The Cleveland Show"), and John Witherspoon ("The Boondocks," "The First Family"). Production has begun on the new series in Los Angeles, CA, which will premiere later this year. »
