With the help of his friends -- and a few enemies -- Jesse will need to escape his past… because the future of the world depends on it.
“Preacher” stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Malcolm Barrett and new series regulars Betty Buckley (“Supergirl,” “Split”) and Colin Cunningham (“Blood Drive,” “Falling Skies”). Jeremy Childs (“The Last Castle,” “Nashville”), Liz McGeever (“Star, Nashville”), Jonny Coyne (“Turn,” “Alcatraz”), Adam Croasdell (“Reign”) and Prema Cruz (“Mozart in the Jungle”) are recurring guest stars.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by executive producer and showrunner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”) and executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Sausage Party,” “This is the End,” “Superbad”).

Joy Nash as Plum Kettle and Drew Gehling as Jack
AMC’s original series “Dietland,” continues with a new episode on Monday, July 16th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. On the seventh episode, “Rad Fatties,” riding high on her brush with fame, Plum's life has a new purpose. However, a date with an unlikely man threatens to topple it all. The episode is written by Nancy Fichman and Jennifer Hoppe-House and directed by Helen Shaver.
Based on Sarai Walker’s 2015 best-selling, critically acclaimed novel of the same name, “Dietland” is a wickedly funny and extraordinarily timed satire about Plum Kettle, a ghost-writer for the editor of one of New York’s hottest fashion magazines. Struggling with self-image and fed up with how she’s treated by her boss and society, Plum sets out on a wildly complicated road to self-awakening. At the same time, everyone is buzzing over news reports about men, accused of sexual abuse and assault, who are disappearing and meeting untimely, violent deaths. Equal parts revenge fantasy and a journey to self-acceptance, “Dietland” is a darkly comedic story that explores a multitude of issues faced by women today.
The series stars Joy Nash (“The Mindy Project,” “Twin Peaks”) as Plum Kettle, and Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award-winner Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife,” “ER”) as Kitty Montgomery. Marti Noxon (“Mad Men,” “UnREAL,”) serves as executive producer, writer, showrunner and directs multiple episodes of the series.
The sixth episode of the “Dietland” companion talk show, “Unapologetic with Aisha Tyler” will air live on Monday, July 16th at 10:00 pm ET with “Dietland” star Robin Weingert, actress and LGBTQIA advocate Laverne Cox and actor and activist Matt McGorry as this week’s guests.
Unlike a conventional after show confined to the companion series itself, “Unapologetic” will feature Tyler leading a topical discussion around the broader, female-centric issues and themes that “Dietland” explores. Tyler will be talking with celebrity fans, series actors and producers, as well as relevant journalists, writers, comedians and other tastemakers. Embassy Row’s Michael Davies, Tammy Johnston and Amanda McPhillips serve as executive producers.
