Although we posted this story the other day, leave it to Bleeding Cool to somehow get a "scoop" about it after the story has broken. The initial story making the rounds had Preacher coming to AMC, and though AMC will have distribution rights in North America, the new series is actually being made by Sony.
We posted tweets from Seth Rogen as part of this weekend's story, but we were not aware what Rogen's role was with the project. Now we have a better idea: The show has been developed for Sony Pictures Television by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Breaking Bad series writer Sam Caitlin through producer Neal Moritz’ Original Pictures.
Preacher creator Garth Ennis is happy with their development and has said they capture the essence of the character well. If the show moves forward, Ennis is expected to remain on as a show consultant.

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
