Watch the Intense First Trailer for Preacher

It looks like a cross between True Detective, Rectify, and True Blood.

The new trailer for AMC‘s Preacher is here, looking a bit like a mashup between True Detective and Rectify and True Blood.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, fans of the DC comic series, developed the series for the cable network after plans for a feature film fell apart. Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger) plays Reverend Jesse Custer, a preacher in an a small Texas town who had a supernatural encounter and is now on a mission to literally find God.  But there’s plenty of trouble along the way, as Rev. Custer is being sought after himself. True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths stars as Emily, Jesse’s partner in heavenly pursuit. Joseph Gilgun plays an Irish vampire who is also part of the searching-for-God squad.

Preacher will air on AMC sometime in 2016; no premiere date has been announced.
