The growing network keeps expanding its muscles, and is now offering a continuing flow of new TV series. A unique fantasy in the making is, somewhat shockingly, “American Jesus.”
Created from a comic book story, it features a 12-year-old boy in the USA reincarnated as the religious icon. And he possesses all the magic powers, as the publicity boasts, “He can turn water into wine, make the crippled walk, and, perhaps, even raise the dead.”
However, it doesn’t boast that he could turn politicians honest, banish horny Hollywood casting-couch producers, bring back Elvis or prevent deeply religious guys in black suits from molesting him. Well, if all those evils continue to plague mankind, it may just have to be the pre-teen American savior’s cross to bear.
