As the days pass, we’re getting closer and closer to AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis’ revered comic book series, Preacher. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Superbad) are, of course, on board as producers while Sam Catlin (a producer on Breaking Bad) is attached as showrunner. The series will follow Jesse Custer, a small town preacher who is imbued with the word of God power that allows him to force people to do what he says. Along with his Irish vampire buddy, Cassidy, and his ex-girlfriend Tulip, he’ll attempt to find God, who vacated his seat in the kingdom of Heaven.
The show will premiere on AMC on May 22, but you might get to see the series premiere a bit earlier. AMC sent out a press release detailing a contest that will allow four towns to catch the pilot episode before its initial airing. Per AMC:
AMC announced today a social media campaign that will bring special pop-up screenings of the highly-anticipated new series “Preacher” to super fans’ hometowns in the weeks leading into the show’s May 22nd premiere. Beginning today, fans can visit Twitter or Instagram to post their most creative photos, videos or comments about why their hometown deserves an exclusive “Preacher” screening using the hashtag #PreacherFanScreenings. AMC will select four cities or towns for a screening of the series’ pilot episode on April 30, May 7, 15 and 21. Fans can visit PreacherFanScreenings.com for more information.
So, pucker up and take a selfie (in the vein of Arseface, of course) because Preacher may be invading your hometown.
