As controversy goes, the fourth and final season of ‘The Boondocks’ served it up in earnest. Indeed, beyond being a relative snoozer (criminal after the near five-year wait), it also was the first season of the cult hit to not feature the involvement of creator Aaron McGruder – who was reportedly booted from his own show.
Undeterred, McGruder is back with ‘Black Jesus’, which is about…well…Black Jesus.
Set to debut on Adult Swim on August 7th, the live-action comedy positions the religious figure in the heart of Compton. Each episode will see him navigate through the ratchet trials and tribulations of those that live in the neighbourhood.
Check out the controversial trailer after the jump…
Both Adult Swim and McGruder are renown for their raciness, as such the ‘OMG’ factor of the trailer dimmed as it progressed. Still, we’re not sure whether this skews more towards funny or blasphemy.
That said, on the merit of the magic that was ‘The Boondocks’ we’ll give it chance. Will you?
