Dave Porter, the composer of AMC’s acclaimed drug drama Breaking Bad, has signed on to compose original music for Preacher, the cabler’s adaptation of the envelope-pushing DC/Vertigo comic.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg directed the pilot and are executive producing, while Sam Catlin is the showrunner. Sony Pictures Television is the production entity behind the project.
The two-hour pilot is set to premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival on March 14.
Preacher, created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, tells the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a preacher in a small Texas town who is possessed by a mysterious entity that imbues him with immense power. Joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), he embarks on a journey to find God.
Porter scored all 62 episodes of Breaking Bad and created its theme. In June 2014, he was a winner of the inaugural ASCAP composer’s choice award for best TV composer for his work on the show as well as NBC’s The Blacklist. Porter is currently working on AMC’s Better Call Saul and recently reunited with fellow Breaking Bad alum Moira Walley-Beckett for her Golden Globe-nominated series Flesh and Bone on Starz.
Porter is repped by Maria Machado of The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.
