AMC has now released the Director’s Commentary for the premiere episode of Preacher. Executive producers and directors Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg walk us through the episode and give us a look behind the scenes of the new series.
Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion, Preacher follows Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), an unconventional preacher from a small Texas town, who was pushed into his profession by his effing insane family. Jesse, after being possessed by Genesis, an entity that is half angel and half demon, develops an interesting power, what he commands you must do. He sets out to find God, accompanied by his ex girlfriend Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). In the world of Preacher Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy will encounter regular people, and characters from Heaven, Hell, and everywhere in between.
In the pilot we got a glimpse at just how badass Jessie is. After trying to be good a group of thugs led by an abusive asshole push Jesse to the limit after threatening a kid.
