DESCRIPTION:
(from AMC's press release, September 2015) AMC today announced it has ordered a series based on the twisted and popular '90s comic book franchise "Preacher," created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg ("This Is the End," "Superbad," "Neighbors") and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad"). Rogen & Goldberg will produce the series through their Point Grey banner, along with Neal Moritz's Original Film. AMC has ordered 10 one-hour episodes, with an expected premiere date in mid-2016. "Preacher" is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, "Agent Carter"), a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun, "This Is England") embark on a journey to, literally, find God.
