With Breaking Bad over and Mad Men coming to a close next year, AMC is about to be without the two shows that helped build the network into what it is today. As such, they’re currently looking for “the next big thing” that they hope will fill the void left by those two juggernauts. One of their big gambles is on a television adaptation of the acclaimed comic series Preacher. The show is being developed by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Breaking Bad alum Sam Catlin, and we recently spoke with Goldberg about where the show fits into their schedule and their visual approach to the series.
In addition to speaking with Goldberg, though, Steve also sat down with Rogen in anticipation of the release of Neighbors, and he also touched on their plans for Preacher. Rogen said that he and Goldberg—his co-director on This Is the End—are currently signing on to direct the pilot as they work on the script. However, he added that they’re also working towards mapping out the entire series before they really dig into the pilot script, noting that they hope to make enough changes so that the show is still surprising for fans of the comic.
