CCRL membership message, May 7, 2010 – Comedy Central, the US comedy network whose programs often make their way to Canada on the Comedy Network, announced Thursday it has a cartoon series about Jesus Christ in the works. “JC” is one of 23 potential series the network said it has in development. It reportedly depicts Christ as a “regular guy” who moves to New York to “escape his father’s enormous shadow.” This Reuters article has more information, including details about the network’s comparative reticence about insulting other religions. As the article notes, most TV proposals never become complete series, but in this case some letters of concern could help make sure it doesn’t happen.
