Preacher HBO Show Canned
Due to content issues the HBO adaptation of the Vertigo comic Preacher has been shelved. The new head of HBO felt the show was going to be too dark, violent and controversial. The fact it was so dark and controversial was part of the books appeal. Done properly the show could have been just as great as the comic, one of my all time favorites. It is a shame, but probably for the best as they would likely have ruined it anyway.
