Building upon the previous YouTube mini-series of the same name, we get a new version teeming with action, cameos, and of course knowledge of the mystical and esoteric variety.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the show:

From the creator for The Boondocks, Aaron Mcgruder’s new upcoming series puts Jesus in the present day in Compton trying to spread peace, kindness and help through the show with a few neighborhood followers by his side.
