“Preacher” is finally moving into production at AMC. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have begun to map out what the pilot episode of the series adaptation will look like.
Recently, Rogen tweeted an image referencing what they have planned for the pilot episode. You can see the tweet below.
The series is based on the comic series by Garth Ennis and Steven Dillon. Fans were a bit worried about whether the series would stay true to the comic book series when AMC released an official synopsis of the show version as you can see below:
Preacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is one of the most iconic bad guys in print – an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.
But, as you can see from the board in Rogen’s pic, the pilot episode is starting out with Genesis right there at the beginning.
