Review: Why Seth Rogen's 'Preacher' was smart to move away from the comics

Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, and Joseph Gilgun star in an adaptation of the beloved '90s comic

We live in an age of miracles when it comes to allegedly unadaptable books actually being adapted. For years, fantasy fans assumed no one could do right by George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books, but then Game of Thrones became a phenomenon for readers and non-readers alike. Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books seemed too larded with historical detail (and the occasional extremely graphic rape scene) to seem plausible as a TV show, but the Starz version has won over most of her audience.

Now comes AMC's Preacher, based on an acclaimed '90s comic book series, by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, whose apparent barriers to adaptation are so numerous and daunting that they make A Song of Ice and Fire look like Bridget Jones' Diary.

This actress had the BEST response to dealing with her show's cancellation

Actress Natalie Morales has been down the one-season wonder path before, as the star of ABC Family's delightful (and woefully mismatched with its own network) The Middleman, then as a supporting player on ABC's Trophy Wife. So when FOX canceled The Grinder last week, Morales didn't wallow in losing another job; she made comic art out of it.

FOX schedules 'Lethal Weapon' for fall, saves '24' & 'Prison Break' sequels for midseason

Upfront week continues with FOX's schedule announcement for next season. Technically, you need three for a trend, but based on FOX's plans and what NBC announced yesterday, it does seem as if we may be heading for a season where the broadcast nets save most of their new material for winter and spring, and lean heavily on returning series in the fall, when the attrition rate tends to be higher.
