So last week, when Seth Rogan tweeted that PREACHER promo, it turns out he did it because AMC officially picked up the series — but he forgot to explicitly mention that. Way to promote your show, Mr. Executive Producer!
Rogen is exec-producing the 10-episode series with Evan Goldberg (This Is the End), and it is expected to bow in mid-2016.
The show’s official synopsis describes it thusly:
PREACHER centers on Rev. Jesse Custer (AGENT CARTER’s Dominic Cooper), a conflicted Texas minister who merges with a spiritual force called Genesis — making him more mighty than the Almighty. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip (AGENTS OF SHIELD‘s Ruth Negga) and the hard-drinking Irish vampire Cassidy (MISFITS‘ Joseph Gilgun), Custer begins a violent journey across the country in search of answers from a disenfranchised God. Lucy Griffiths (TRUE BOOD) also stars.
Preacher, which received a 10-episode order, is expected to debut in mid-2016.
