I often sarcastically use the phrase, "How could that possibly go wrong?"

In all seriousness, this time, how can it possibly go RIGHT?

The show stars newcomer Gerald "Slink" Johnson (Grand Theft Auto V) as 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.
To those who'll say that there have been modern-day updates of the Gospel that have worked, I say yes, I agree. But this is a comedy on Adult Swim that will likely air between Tim and Eric pissing on people, and cartoon squids being racist.

It could make for a real Holy Shit moment, in many ways. And by the way, I'm actually quite anxious to see it.
