Back in July I shared the Season 4 trailer for the AMC Studios Original Series “Preacher” which of course is loosely based on the DC Comics Vertigo series of the same name. If you missed that posting just click HERE to see it. The series begins its final go round this evening on AMC so let’s examine the poster, some premise and casting.
The Premise: Jesse Custer is a hard-drinking, chain-smoking preacher who, enduring a crisis of faith, becomes infused with an extraordinary power. He embarks on a quest to better understand his new gift and literally finds God, alongside his trigger-happy ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and new vampire friend, Cassidy. “Preacher” is an adaptation of the intense comic book series that was done by Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis. It ran as a part of the DC Comics Vertigo imprint for “75” total issues. The show does NOT follow the general canon of the printed page.

The Press Release:
Bestselling comic book series Farmhand, created and illustrated by Rob Guillory, has been optioned for television development by AMC/AMC Studios. Guillory is set to write the pilot for the series and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. “I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.” Continue reading Image Comics “Farmhand” Series Optioned For Television By AMC→
The Geekier side of the small screen is closing up on some of the shows that have been amusing us for some time with “Gotham” already gone and “I Zombie” following suit soon enough. “The Gifted” is gone already with “Legion” following afterwards and now its time to deliver the final season of the AMC Original Series “Preacher”. The trailer for this was showcased during the SDCC and I’m broadcasting it here since that is what we do with this kind of stuff. Take a look.

I’ve discussed the brand new horror series “NOS4A2” on the website already with our last go round being the trailer found HERE. This show premieres tonight and looks like it might be a lot of fun. Let’s glance at the series poster, premise and casting down below.
The Premise: “NOS4A2 follows Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young working-class artist who discovers that she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.” (c/o Wiki). Continue reading Tonight: “NOS4A2” Series Premiere on AMC (6/2/2019)→
Fans of “The Walking Dead” franchise will be excited that the companion show “Fear The Walking Dead” will be premiering its fifth season tonight on the AMC Network. I shared the trailer for the latest series HERE in case you missed it. Since I am so many episodes behind for the show I didn’t actually watch it myself if you can believe it. Anyway, here’s the poster, premise and some of the casting. Check it out.
The Premise: Set initially in Los Angeles, California and then later in Mexico, the series follows a dysfunctional, blended family composed of high school guidance counselor Madison Clark, her English teacher fiancé Travis Manawa, her daughter Alicia, her drug addict son Nick, Travis’s son from a previous marriage, Chris, Chris’s mother Liza Ortiz, and others who join their group at the onset of the apocalypse. They must reinvent themselves, learning new skills and adopting new attitudes in order to survive as civilization collapses around them.
