Remember when AMC announced that it was developing the comic book adaptation with Seth Rogen and Adam Goldberg? Well, AMC has officially ordered the pilot for Preacher with Rogen and Goldberg serving as executive producers and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) as showrunner.

Preacher follows Rev. Jesse Custer, a conflicted Texas minister who merges with a spiritual force called Genesis — making him more mighty than the Almighty. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard-drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, Custer begins a violent journey across the country in search of answers from a disenfranchised God,” per TVLine.

“Every once in a while you find a project where all the elements line up beautifully. With Preacher, it starts with a bold, compelling, and thought-provoking comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and a whole lot of fans who already know Jesse Custer, Cassidy, and Tulip,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s EVP of Original Programming, in a statement. “Add to that the passionate and talented Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin, an incredible producing team in Neal Moritz, the Original Film team and our good friends at Sony Pictures Television, and we have everything we need to be very excited to move forward on Preacher.”
