In Preacher, Dominic Cooper stars as Jesse, a West Texas preacher who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Ruth Negga plays his badass ex-girlfriend, Tulip. And Joseph Gilgun is an Irish vagabond named Cassidy. The trio are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg developed the series along with showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).

The supporting cast includes Lucy Griffiths as Emily, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface, and Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck.
