Exclusive: AMC’s Preacher Turns Austin Upside Down at SXSW 2016
With the anticipated debut of “Preacher” the series on AMC in May, the network is making Austin weirder by turning the world at SXSW upside down.
The series, which will premiere at SXSW on Monday, March 14, is celebrating all weekend with an installation that turns the show’s teaser art into a upside down life-size house. And we just happened to chance upon the installation to bring you an up-close and personal tour of it.
On the corner of Red River Street and 4th Street in Austin, Texas, the installation will be on display March 11th-15th from 10am-10pm daily and is open to the public.

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic series from Vertigo, “Preacher” revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a badass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes the only one who is able to track God down and hold him responsible for his abdication. Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga), Jesse’s ex-girlfriend, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), an Irish vampire, accompany him on his quest for answers.
