Seth Rogen will be collaborating with Evan Goldberg to bring a TV adaptation of DC Comics’ Preacher to AMC in mid-2016.
Preacher is a popular comic book franchise created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. It centers around the story of Reverend Jesse Custer, who after losing his faith and developing a special power goes on a journey to literally find God. He is accompanied by his ex-girlfriend named Tulip O’Hare and a drunken Irish vampire named Cassidy. On their journey they encounter a plethora of odd characters who attempt to interfere with their quest.
I have not read this series, but it looks awesome. With the success of other Gothic Southern tales like True Detective: Season 1 and a huge cult following for the comic, I’m sure that Preacher will be a success. Also, just look at the quality of other AMC series like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. It looks like I have some reading to do before 2016.
