The premise will be about a boy named JC who is trying to get away from his father's rules, aka God, and live a normal life in New York.

The series is described as a "playful take on religion and society with a sprinkle of dumb," according to the NY Post. In the show, "God" is powerful but apathetic and enjoys playing video games.

Just recently, Comedy Central raised eyebrows after including an animated image of Prophet Mohammed in an episode of South Park. No word on when JC will begin airing on the network.
