AMC’s new series Preacher premiered over the weekend to quite a bit of good buzz, and now the network is making the first episode available to watch online with commentary from directors (and producers) Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
You’ll need an account with a cable provider to watch the episode and associated commentary on AMC’s website, but if you have an account and enjoyed the first episode of Preacher — or even just the comic it’s based on — the commentary is well worth hearing. Along with discussing the episode itself, Rogen and Goldberg talk at length about the process of adapting the series and some of the decisions that had to be made in order to finally bring the groundbreaking comic book series to the screen.
Executive produced and developed by Rogen and Goldberg, the series follows a small-town Texas preacher played by Dominic Cooper who acquires a powerful, mysterious ability and embarks on a mission that will shake both Heaven and Hell. Along the way, he’s joined by Tulip, his tough-as-nails former girlfriend played by Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress Ruth Negga, and an Irish rogue named Cassidy played by Misfits actor Joseph Gilgun.
The supporting cast of the series includes Ian Colletti as the tragic “Arseface,” as well as W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Hugo Root, Lucy Griffiths as church assistant Emily Woodrow (an original character created for the series), Jackie Earle Haley as Odin Quinncannon, and Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon (another original character for the series).
Breaking Bad writer and producer Sat Catlin serves as head writer and showrunner on the series.
The series premiere aired Sunday, May 22, and the series will continue to air Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on AMC.
