Developed for television by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, "Preacher" premieres Sunday, May 22, on AMC.

Based on the acclaimed DC Comics/Vertigo series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, "Preacher" follows Rev. Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher who has lost his faith, and has learned God abandoned his responsibilities and left Heaven. Determined to track down the Almighty and make him answer for his dereliction of duty, Jesse is accompanied by his ex-girlfriend and a friendly vampire who prefers a pint at the pub to the blood of the innocent.

But hot on Jesse's heels is an immortal killing machine named the Saint of Killers, whose sole purpose is to hunt him down.

"Preacher" is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
