‘Preacher’ Heads to Amazon Prime in U.K., Germany and Japan

Amazon Prime has snapped up streaming rights to AMC’s darkly comedic drama “Preacher” for U.K., Austria, Germany and Japan.

Members of the service will be able to watch the program from May 23, with subsequent episodes launching on Mondays from June 6, one day after the show unspools on AMC in the U.S.

Produced by Seth Rogan, Evan Goldberg (“Superbad,” “Bad Neighbours”) and show runner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”) and based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s comic book, “Preacher” is a supernatural drama that follows a west Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power.

Dominic Cooper stars alongside Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun.

Deal was negotiated with Sony Pictures Television for Amazon Prime Video in the U.K., Austria, Germany and Japan.

“‘Preacher’ is one of the most ambitious and highly-anticipated new series of the year and exactly the kind of show we want to bring to our Prime members around the world,” said Brad Beale, vice president of worldwide television acquisition for Amazon. “Sitting alongside shows like ‘The Man in the High Castle,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘Mr Robot,’ ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and the upcoming Clarkson, Hammond and May show, ‘The Grand Tour,’ ‘Preacher’ is another great addition to our line-up and we think our customers are going to love it.”
