ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The New Mexico Film Office says production of the television series “Preacher” will begin next month in Albuquerque.
Produced by AMC Studios and Sony Pictures Television, the series was developed for television by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin. It’s based on the cult comic book of the same name.
The series will follow a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop an unusual power.
Dominic Cooper will star as Custer. He’ll be joined by Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Lucy Griffiths, Ian Colletti and Earl W. Brown.
The New Mexico Film Office says the production will employ at least 175 local crew members.
AMC has ordered 10 one-hour episodes. The series is expected to premiere later this year.
