In our spring profile of Adult Swim, we spoke to developers about Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder's upcoming television comeback "Black Jesus," and they assured us the scripted comedy would be "more about the community at large." Today we get the first glimpse of the show, and it looks to more than deliver: Black Jesus faces haters, non-believers, drive-by shootings and SWAT teams all within a three minute trailer. With The Boondocks' fourth season being largely panned by devoted fans for McGruder's absence, "Black Jesus" arrives highly anticipated as a brand new outlet for the writer's stinging satire and dark twists on black comedy. The series premieres August 7th.
