The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for TV by Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) and Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (This Is The End, Superbad, Neighbors). Rogen & Goldberg are producing through their Point Grey banner, along with Neal Moritz’s Original Film. The pilot was written by Sam Catlin. Rogen & Goldberg are directing.
Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s twisted ‘90s comic book series, “Preacher” is about Jesse Custer, a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
Preacher is aiming for series consideration in 2016 from AMC.
