Comic book TV series stars Dominic Cooper and Joe Gilgun
Preacher, the new TV series produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, will be broadcast in the UK by Amazon Prime.
The dark comic book tale begins in the US on AMC this weekend (May 22). Until today it was unknown whether the show would be broadcast in Britain but Amazon have confirmed that they will show it on Mondays, 24 hours after it airs Stateside.
The pilot episode will be available from Monday (May 23) with episode two following a fortnight later, and then each Monday thereafter.
“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 our Prime members around the world,” said Amazon worldwide television acquisition vice-president Brad Beale.
Rogen and Goldberg work regularly together and have produced a number of Rogen’s films, including Knocked Up, Superbad and Bad Neighbours. The showrunner on Preacher is Breaking Bad writer Sam Catlin. Preacher is an adaptation of the comic book series created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon for DC imprint Vertigo.
Dominc Cooper stars as Jesse; a preacher from Texas who can control people and make them do his bidding. He is joined in the series by Joseph Gilgun (an Irish vampire) and Ruth Negga (Jesse’s assasin ex-girlfriend).
AMC released the first four minutes of the series ahead of its premiere. Check them out below:
