The creator of “Orange Is the New Black” recently said she’s working on a new fictional series about Jesus’ teenage years and has purchased terrorism insurance because of the controversy she expects the show will bring.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, producer Jenji Kohan joined other high profile television industry producers and revealed that she decided to purchase terrorism insurance in case violence errupts over the fictional series about Jesus’ teenage years.
“You’re always going to do something that someone doesn’t like and you don’t know how crazy that someone’s going to be,” she said, alluding to it’s controversial plot, describing it as being “like ‘The Wonder Years’ but with Jesus.”
“There all sorts of things where we cross lines and people get weird about it.”
Kohan, however, didn’t provide any details about the plot but emphasized that the upcoming Netflix series has “got some people nervous.”
“There are all sorts of things where we cross lines,” she said, “and there are crazies out there.”
In the Bible, the only mention of Jesus’ early years, other than His birth, is when He’s found teaching in the temple as a child.
A release date for the series hasn’t been announced.
