After being relieved as executive producer and writer of cult hit The Boondocks, Aaron McGruder returns with his off the wall comedy called Black Jesus set to bow on Adult Swim Thursday, August 7th, at 11p ET. Seems like there is a bunch of stereotypes in this expanded trailer but hopefully there will be some nuggets of wisdom in this and not just a retread of characters we have seen a million times.
Black Jesus is a half hour live-action scripted comedy series on Adult Swim from Peabody award-winning creator Aaron McGruder (The Boondocks, Red Tails) and Mike Clattenburg (Trailer Park Boys). The series 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.
