NEW YORK – Having already caused a fuss this spring with the depiction of the prophet Muhammad on "South Park," Comedy Central said Thursday that 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 depicts Christ as a "regular guy" who moves to New York to "escape his father's enormous shadow."
His father is presented as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life, according to Comedy Central's thumbnail sketch of the idea. Reveille, the production company behind "The Office," "Ugly Betty" and "The Biggest Loser," is making "JC."
It wouldn't be the first time Jesus Christ has been on a Comedy Central cartoon; he's a recurring character on the long-running "South Park."
Comedy Central was the target last month of an Internet threat for a "South Park" episode that supposedly showed Islam's prophet in a bear costume.

ZOMG they need to insult Islam too or else it's not good enough!!! WE SHOULD INSULT EVERY RELIGION AND EVERY CULTURE!!!!
Is this really what America has come to? No wonder everybody else hates us.
Donohue has a still of himself wearing the papal miter from this episode displayed in his office. He sums up the plot as "I take over the church and give it some guts".
