Adult Swim has ordered Black Jesus. The half-hour scripted comedy from The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder strays from their usual animated comedy shows but continues their path of edgy material. The show stars comedian Gerald “Slink” Johnson, with whom McGruder used on an episode of The Boondocks, 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. The show also features comedians Charlie Murphy (Chappelle’s Show), Corey Holcomb (The Cleveland Show), and John Witherspoon (The Boondocks, Friday). Production is already underway in Los Angeles.
