As promised, AMC has released the very first trailer for the comic book-based series "Preacher," starring Dominic Cooper (aka Howard Stark from the Marvel movies) as disgruntled Texas minister and supernatural-powered anti-hero Jesse Custer.

The 60-second preview, which aired during Sunday Night's airing of a special 90-minute episode of "The Walking Dead," provides the very first look at the forthcoming live-action drama based on the popular and controversial '90s Vertigo graphic novel series created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon.

Executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg -- with Goldberg directing the pilot episode, the series sees Cooper as Jesse Custer, a hard-living, small-town preacher who loses his faith but becomes possessed by a half-angel, half-demon deity called Genesis. Now possessing "The Word of God," a celestial power to command people's minds, Custer sets off on a cross-country journey to seek answers from God. He's accompanied by his pistol-packing ex-girlfriend, Tulip (played by "Agents of SHIELD" star Ruth Negga), and his hard-drinking best friend, Cassidy (This Is England's Joseph Gilgun), who also happens to be an Irish vampire.

"Preacher," which co-stars W. Earl Brown, Elizabeth Perkins, Jamie Anne Allman, Lucy Griffiths, Tom Brooke and Ian Colletti as suicide survivor "Arseface," will be premiering on AMC in mid-2016.
