Fans of the DC Vertigo Comics series “Preacher” should be excited as tonight the AMC Network will premiere the first episode of the new live series. The Black Comedy is one of my own favorite comic series and I think that the creators of the show will have their work cut out for them. Check out the show information and cast along with the poster below and I’ll return at the close with added thoughts.
The Show: Preacher is an upcoming American television series developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin for AMC starring Dominic Cooper.

The series was officially picked up on September 9, 2015, with a ten-episode order and is scheduled to premiere on May 22, 2016.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now when I first showcased the trailer for the program on THIS POST I wasn’t too keen on it but with the season ending for “The Flash”, “Agents of SHIELD” and “Supergirl” I will have some room on the DVR to let it record and catch up when my schedule slows down. Maybe it will be better than I had initially anticipated and will grow on me. I hope so because I was a stickler for this one remaining as close to the comic book as possible. Will you watch this show? Let me know in the comments section below.
