Yesterday we got the news that the script for AMC’s “Preacher” pilot is done and looking pretty good, and today we have an update from Nerdist News’ Jessica Chobot.
In the below video Jessica takes us through the major comic-to-screen changes “Preacher” fans can expect from the show and fills us in on which of our favorite characters definitely made the cut. She also provides a few theories on where the series might go from these auspicious, exciting beginnings so if you’re a fan of the comic, be sure to check it out!
“Preacher,” a Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production, was developed for TV by Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”) and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Superbad, Neighbors). Rogen and Goldberg will produce through their Point Grey banner along with Neal Moritz’s Original Film. The pilot was written by Sam Catlin. Rogen and Goldberg are attached to direct.
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.
The pilot will be produced in the summer of 2015 for series consideration in 2016.
