Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead gave us our first look at AMC’s upcoming show, Preacher -based on the acclaimed Vertigo comic created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
Check it out below:
The show, being developed by writing partners Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, stars Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) in the lead role with Ruth Negga (Agents of SHIELD) and Joe Gilgun (Misfits) in supporting roles.
Last the week AMC released the following synopsis:
Based on the twisted and popular ‘90s comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher,” created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) 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), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God. 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”). The series is set to premiere mid-2016.
The trailer certainly looks like it’ll be keeping the same tone, and it’ll be interesting to see if Rogan and Goldberg can pull it off and please fans of the comic.
