Description: Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power.

Comments: AMC has been doing a pretty good job with sci fi / fantasy entries of late (The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, Into the Badlands), and the early buzz on this show has been quite high going into its premiere.  It premieres at 10 PM EST after the Fear the Walking Dead mid-season finale before assuming the 9 PM EST timeslot on Sundays in two weeks and it is definitely worth checking out.
