AMC's Preacher TV series is officially underway as filming on the pilot has begun in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Executive Producer/director Seth Rogen took to Twitter to post: "I can't believe we are f---ing doing this!!!!"
The series is based on the Garth Ennis DC Comics Vertigo comic book of the same name that sees Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) as a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a creature that has escaped from heaven and develops the ability to make anyone do anything he says. Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), the three embark on a journey to literally find God.
Preacher also stars Ian Colletti as Arseface, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla, W. Earl Brown as Hugo Root, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck, Jamie Anne Allman as Betsy Schneck and Ricky Mabe as Miles Person.
