During "The Walking Dead Mega Sunday" on November 1, AMC will debut the first "Preacher" trailer. The trailer will run during a special 90-minute episode of "The Walking Dead," which begins at 9 pm EST (via SuperHeroHype). "Into the Badlands" will also premiere that night.
Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's acclaimed comic, "Preacher" stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tulip, Gilgun as his vampire friend Cassidy, Colletti as Arseface and Lucy Griffiths as Emily, a character created for the TV show.
Executive producer and co-director Seth Rogen developed "Preacher" for AMC alongside frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg, who also serves as co-director on the pilot. The pair also directed the feature films "This is the End" and "The Interview." "Breaking Bad" alum Sam Catlin, who wrote the pilot, will serve as showrunner. With filming scheduled to begin in February, the show is expected to air sometime in summer 2016.
