HitFix is reporting that AMC “can’t confirm right now” with regards to Preacher, but what they (and others) have found are some tweets from Seth Rogen that seem to be offering some billboard-sized clues that they are indeed the folks working on the project:
Looks like about seven of years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to life.

Preacher was at one point in development for HBO but at the time was deemed “too dark, too violent, and too controversial.” But, with the success of The Walking Dead, maybe a trip to Jesse Custer’s church is the exact recipe for another TV hit.
