The Boondocks' sculptor Aaron McGruder has just signed on to to produce a Black Jesus series that will join his first show on Adult Swim in the not too distant future. As the Freeman family gets ready to take the screen for its fourth season, McGruder along with Boondocks vets Charlie Murphy and John Witherspoon are already shooting and developing the irreverent series to debut at the end of this year. No word yet on when that premiere will actually go down, but you can be sure that you'll be the first to know when we do. We'll have more on Black Jesus soon, but be sure to tune into the fourth season of The Boondocks when it hits April 21st.
