Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg — Superbad screenwriters and real-life BFF’s — are set to produce a 10-episode series based on the ’90s franchise Preacher, the comic created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
Preacher, which was just picked up by AMC, will focus on Jesse Custer (played by Dominic Cooper) a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God.
