Although Aaron McGruder is no longer behind the groundbreaking animated series The Boondocks, he has been hard at work with another show that will premiere on Adult Swim on August 7.

Black Jesus will surely raise some eyebrows as it deposits Jesus (Gerald “Slink” Johnson) in present day Compton. McGruder has always been a lightning rod for controversy and this show will likely be no different. The series also stars Charlie Murphy (Chapelle’s Show), Corey Holcomb (The Cleveland Show), John Witherspoon (The Boondocks), Kali Hawk (Bridesmaids), Andra Fuller (L.A. Complex), Antwon Tanner (One Tree Hill), Andrew Bachelor (House of Lies), Angela Gibbs (The Fosters), and Valenzia Algarin (True Blood). Check out the summary below followed by the trailer.

Black Jesus is a half hour live-action scripted comedy series on Adult Swim from Peabody award-winning creator Aaron McGruder (The Boondocks, Red Tails) and Mike Clattenburg (Trailer Park Boys). The series finds Jesus living in present day Compton, CA on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.
