Comedy Central developing Jesus Christ cartoon
Hollywood Reporter ^ | May 5, 2010 | James Hibberd

Posted on 05/06/2010 7:11:36 AM PDT by Zakeet

Comedy Central might censor every image of the Prophet Muhammad on "South Park," yet the network is developing a whole animated series around Jesus Christ.

Jesus-south-park As part of the network's upfront presentation to advertisers (full slate here), the network is set to announce "JC," a half-hour show about Christ wanting to escape the shadow of his "powerful but apathetic father" and live a regular life in New York City.

In the show, God is preoccupied with playing video games while Christ, "the ultimate fish out of water," tries to adjust to life in the big city.

"In general, comedy in purist form always makes some people uncomfortable," said Comedy Central's head of original programming Kent Alterman.

I will definitely have to email them on that one. Would they allow a cartoon series on Muhammad?

Right on, man! So I can go back to telling racy jokes in the office, right? And racist ones too! It's just comedy in it's purist form!

Anyone up for “sharia for Christ”? We know Comedy Central are cowards so all it takes is a threatening email to cause them to censor themselves. Pretty funny, huh?

Warning! This show is NOT being produced by Matt Stone and Trey Parker despite CC’s use of South Park’s version of Jesus to promote it.

I doubt they will come to a good end, and it won’t be because God needs our help to deal with it.

I do not even watch this channel..Aren’t they the ones that made fun of Mohammad and got a death threat? They backed down..

I am sure civilized people will not threaten them, people like us..Christians have been made fun of through the centuries and so has God so far we aren’t dead from it like the Muslims kill anyone making fun of them..

I won’t have to pay for other sins, they will.. What would get me mad is another piece of so called art by putting a crucifix in a bottle of urine..

You don’t watch that channel? Well, unless you’re a Neilson family it doesn’t matter, you’re paying them thru your cable or satellite outlet. Don’t you think it’s time we all just pulled the plug on these creeps? Is God going to forgive you for lining their pockets while they spew their garbage. It’s not like this is the only offensive nonsense on the tube.

Simon & Schuster is also owned by Viacom through different companies:

n 1998, Viacom sold the S&S educational, professional, and reference units to Pearson PLC. In 2002, Simon & Schuster was integrated with the Paramount motion picture and television studios as part of the Viacom Entertainment Group, and in 2004 direct oversight of the company returned to Viacom corporate headquarters.

In 2006, with the separation of Viacom and CBS into unique publicly traded companies, Simon & Schuster became a part of the CBS Corporation.

As a major international publishing company, many Simon & Schuster titles are published globally, and its products — hardcovers, trade and mass market paperbacks, children’s books for all age and reading levels, novelty formats, audiobooks (both compact disk and digital downloads) and ebooks of bestselling and critically acclaimed fiction and nonfiction for readers of all ages and every conceivable taste — are distributed in more than 100 countries around the world.

And CBS/Viacom have an intertwined history:
