AMC debuted the trailer for their upcoming Preacher series on last night’s The Walking Dead.
And here it is. It looks pretty good – for all we get to see – but really, that’s the best Irish accent we get these days? Ugh.
Let us know your thoughts…
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 (Dominic Cooper), 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 (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
Preacher is aiming for series consideration in 2016 from AMC.
