AMC's Preacher: Season 1 — On-The-Set Featurette


added: Thu, Mar 17th '16

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are on the set of their new highly-anticipated AMC series "Preacher" in this newly-released behind-the-scenes featurette, which is providing viewers a quick glimpse at the small-screen adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's popular 90s comic book about the darkly-comic and hyper-violent adventures of Jesse Custer, a disgruntled Texas preacher possessed by a half-angel, half-demon deity called Genesis.

Dominic Cooper (aka Howard Stark from the Marvel movies) stars as the title character in this ten-episode supernatural series, which also stars Ruth Negga (Agents of SHIELD) as Jesse's pistol-packing ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and Joseph Gilgun (This Is England) as Jesse's hard-drinking and blood-sucking Irish best friend, Cassidy.

Rogen and Goldberg, who are both devoted fans of the comic book, wrote the pilot episode with Goldberg directing. They serve as executive producers alongside "Breaking Bad" writer Sam Catlin on the upcoming series, which is currently scheduled to premiere on Sunday, May 22nd.

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.
