It's writing day...
Seth Rogen, as we learned back in February, is working with Evan Goldberg on the Preacher TV adaptation for AMC and Sony TV. Rogen teased the upcoming pilot with a picture posted to Twitter captioned "Writing day," which you can see below. The picture shows off a series of cards for the pilot's outline, one of which reads "Intro Genesis." Genesis is the spirit that possesses the titular hero, Jesse Custer.
The show is based on the comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, which tells the story of a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. Given immense powers, the preacher, teamed with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire, set out on a journey across America to find God — who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven — and hold him accountable for his negligence.
