Last week, Seth Rogen took to Twitter to share part of his outline for the upcoming DC Comics television adaptation, "Preacher," based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. Today, Rogen is back with more, sharing the below image and revealing that, as was the case in the first issue of the comic, Willie Nelson's "Time of the Preacher" will be featured.



Coming to AMC, "Preacher" tells the story of Jesse Custer, a down-and-out Texas preacher possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity conceived by the unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon. Given immense powers, the preacher, teamed with an old girlfriend and a hard-drinking Irish vampire, set out on a journey across America to find God who apparently had abandoned his duties in heaven and hold him accountable for his negligence.​

"Breaking Bad" producer Sam Catlin will be the series' showrunner and will also executive produce alongside Rogen, Goldberg, Vivian Cannon, Ken Levin, Ori Marmur, Neal Moritz and Jason Netter.

"Time of the Preacher" (which is sung by Jesse in the first issue) was originally released on Nelson's 1975 album "Redheaded Stranger." You can listen to the song itself in the player below:
