‘Preacher’ Trailer Debuts on AMC: Dominic Cooper Stars in Comic Adaptation

AMC has released the first trailer for upcoming series “Preacher,” which got a substantial platform by debuting during Sunday’s episode of “The Walking Dead.”

Like “Walking Dead,” “Preacher” is also an adaptation of a comic book series; this one created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. Created by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and “Breaking Bad’s” Sam Catlin, it stars Dominic Cooper as bad boy-turned lackluster small-time preacher Jesse Custer. The show also stars Joe Gilgun as Cassidy, an Irish vampire hiding out in town, and Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare, Jesse’s trouble-seeking ex.

The 10-episode first season of “Preacher” is set to premiere in mid-2016. Exec producers are Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver through their Point Grey banner, along with Neal Moritz, Vivian Cannon and Ori Marmur for Original Film. Catlin is also exec producing and serves as showrunner. Other exec producers are Ken Levin and Jason Netter. Ennis and Dillon are co-exec producers. The series comes via Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios.

    Well no it sure isn’t a “SIN” for the child to ask a Priest to Murder someone, so he got that wrong. He sort of sounds like a guy who is trying to be anything but a Christian. Like most people in this nation, he’s an enabler of The Christian Religion… most of these people sure aren’t for real… I think everyone knows that by now. So I hope people get ‘tougher’ on this ‘new’ stuff as many of you ‘try’ to bring your odd ideas of Religion into the Social Media area!

    The trailer shows nothing that resembles the comic. It looks more like “Mariachi” than “Preacher”.

    It’s one of the best series of the Nineties. I highly recommend picking up the 1st book that contains the first bunch of issues.
