The AMC network has announced its plans to begin production on its new series "Preacher," adapted from the 1990s comic series by the same name that follows the adventures of a former reverend in his search to find God, who has abandoned his responsibilities as master of the universe.
The new television series will be produced by Sam Catlin, who also did production work for the hit AMC drama "Breaking Bad," and Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg from "This is the End" will work as executive producers and writers of the show's pilot draft. The original comic version of the storyline was created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon with Vertigo comics, an imprint of DC comics, in the 1990s.
Rogen and Goldberg released a statement expressing their excitement at finally producing a show they have worked seven years to have picked up by a network. "This is amazing! We've tried for seven years to work on 'Preacher' and we're so psyched AMC is finally letting us. It is our favorite comic of all time, and we're going to do everything we can to do it right. Humperdoo!" more >>
The producers of the hit television miniseries "The Bible" have stated that their new film "Son of God" is meant to be a "love story" for an "under-served" audience.

"Within that sweeping drama and tension there was this intimacy of this love story of Jesus," added Burnett, who hoped viewers of the film "fall in love with Jesus." more >>
Joyce Jones, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" personality who came on the show as the mother to singer-songwriter Kandi Burruss, is revealing why she cannot get past her issues with her daughter's fiance.
Jones, known as "Momma Joyce" on the Bravo reality television show, has vehemently disagreed with her singer-songwriter daughter's decision to marry her fiance - broadcast producer Todd Tucker. Although Momma Joyce has recently spoken about making amends with her daughter, it seems she is still not convinced that Tucker is the best choice for her.
Although Jones previously said she would stop meddling in her daughter's love life, it seemed she had a hard time doing that during a recent appearance on CBS Atlanta Morning Show. Jones said she was upset that Tucker defended himself and Burruss' friend Carmen against rumors that they were an item more than his fiancee - daughter Riley. more >>
