AMCs PREACHER Season 1 to Premiere at SXSW 2016 / New Photo Reveal

AMC’s Preacher Season 1 will get its premiere at SXSW 2016. The first episode is set to premiere on TV via AMC mid-2016. Only the first episode will make the early premiere. We also have a new photo featuring Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). SXSW 2016 will run from March 11-19 2016, in Austin, TX. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon created the cult classic comic series, and I am stoked to see how that material transfers over to the small screen in ten one-hour episodes, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, W. Earl Brown, and Lucy Griffiths star in AMC’s Preacher Season 1.

Based on the twisted and popular ‘90s comic book franchise of the same name, "Preacher," created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, is the story of Jesse Custer (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. The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg ("This Is the End," "Superbad," "Neighbors") and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad"). The series is set to premiere mid-2016.
