A television show focusing on the life of Jesus Christ in modern times will air on Comedy Central. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show, titled JC will center on Jesus Christ moving to New York City to escape his “powerful but apathetic father” and live a regular life. “JC” is currently in development, no dates for filming have been announced.

Comedy Central has released a list of twenty-two projects that are in the works, including JC. Also planned is a live, sex chat talk show, “Highdeas”, featuring a comedian exploring questions posed by stoners and “This Show Will Get You High” a new sketch comedy show.

The television show JC is sure to be surrounded with controversy due to its comedic religious theme. Just recently, the network censored an episode of South Park due to their attempt to depict the Prophet Muhammad.
