Seth Rogen Teases Opening Song For Preacher Series
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.15.2014
Seth Rogen has posted a new photo on Twitter which teases his writing process for the upcoming AMC series Preacher, based on the DC Comics series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. He said that as it was in the comic, Willie Nelson's "Time of the Preacher" will be featured.
Here's a synopsis: "Preacher" tells the story of Jesse Custer, 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.?
Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad producer) will be the showrunner and will executive produce with Rogen, Goldberg, Vivian Cannon, Ken Levin, Ori Marmur, Neal Moritz and Jason Netter.
The song, which is sung by Jesse in the first issue, was originally released on Nelson's 1975 album Redheaded Stranger.
