Ah. I've been looking for something to fill that "Walking Dead" shaped hole in my Sunday evening schedule. Thanks for the reminder!
It's going to run simultaneously with the second half of FTWD Season 5!
Also, I read a story somewhere that promised that nothing major from the books would be left out. Frankly, they're already so divorced from the comics I'm not worried about fidelity at this point.
Yeah, the Preacher TV show has evolved into "its own thing" just as TWD TV show has evolved into its own thing. We enjoyed the two-hour season opener last night.
