Seth Rogen and his creative partner, Evan Goldberg have just gotten some great news from the upper brass at AMC - who were the home of the likes of Breaking Bad and Mad Men and currently house the huge hit series, The Walking Dead.

Their comic book adaptation Preacher has been picked up for 10 episodes, and will feature British actor, Dominic Cooper. The Mamma Mia star will play the lead role of Rev. Jesse Custer - a man looking for God. Eh, literally. Irish actress Ruth Negga will also appear as Tulip.
Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon wrote the comic series that found a huge cult following in the 90s. Kevin Smith was involved with a film version at one point; as was Oscar winner Sam Mendes and Daredevil helmer Mark Stephen Johnson.
Rogen and Goldberg will executive produce, with Breaking Bad's Sam Catlin acting as showrunner.
