Don’t think that Billy Corgan doesn’t have much else to do these days. He’s working on not one, but two new Smashing Pumpkins albums (minus most of the original Pumpkins of course), but he’s also got his own amateur wrestling league called Resistance Pro. And now, it looks like AMC is ready to develop an unscripted reality show about Corgan and his wrestling dreams. If Andy Kaufman is really just in hiding and not actually deceased, now would be the perfect time for him to come out.
AMC did it for The Walking Dead, now the network is hoping to find success with a live action TV series adaption of the Vertigo comic book series, ‘Preacher’. Created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the series centers on Reverend Jesse Custer, a disillusioned Texas preacher who discovers that God has abandoned Heaven and takes it upon himself to set things right. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg – the writing/directing duo behind last year’s This Is the End – will write the pilot and serve as executive producers on the series. Breaking Bad producer Sam Catlin will be the showrunner.
Is Garth Ennis’ epic Vertigo series Preacher finally ready to find a home on AMC? Bad Ass Digest is reporting that with AMC depleted of major breakthrough series Breaking Bad, and eventually Mad Men, the network may be eyeing Preacher for a new television series.

Earlier this year, fans loved it when AMC re-aired the pilot of The Walking Dead in black and white, a nod to the comic books. So this February, AMC will be running an marathon of all 18 Walking Dead episodes in scary black and white. Get your popcorn and stay in the damn house.
And by that of course I mean that it’s legally online from AMC. Bout damn time. I don’t have cable, so I haven’t seen it yet. Feel free to discuss the first episode below, but don’t give any spoilers away.
