DESCRIPTION:
(from Adult Swim's press release, December 2014) Adult Swim, basic cable's #1 network with young adults for a decade, announced today that they have picked up second seasons of the successful original live-action series Black Jesus and animated hits Mike Tyson Mysteries and Mr. Pickles. Today's announcement continues the success the network has seen with its expansion into primetime at 8:00 p.m. earlier this year and emphasis on more original programming. Ranking #1 in its time period among all targeted adult and male demos, Black Jesus, centers on 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. Aaron McGruder and Mike Clattenburg serve as creators and executive producers through McGruder's 5 Mutts Productions. LEG's Norman Aladjem, John Bravakis and Stu Schreiberg, along with Robert Wise and Meghann Collin, are also executive producers.
