NEW YORK (AP) — Comedy Central has a cartoon series about Jesus Christ in the works.

Titled “JC,” the series depicts Christ as a “regular guy” who moves to New York to “escape his father’s enormous shadow.” His father is depicted as an apathetic man who would rather play video games than listen to his son talk about his new life.

Comedy Central has pushed the envelope in the past: The long-running “South Park” features Christ as a regular character.

The network says “JC” is on its development slate, steps away from the pilot stage and eventual airing. Many television series in development never make it to air.
