Bringing a Darker Spirituality to Prime Time

There are plenty of spiritual TV projects in the works (NBC’s A.D.: Beyond the Bible, Fox’s Nazareth), but several shows are taking the programming trend in a different direction—examining the dark side of the supernatural. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up with former Breaking Bad co-producer Sam Catlin to adapt the controversial comic Preacher, the story of a minister possessed by a supernatural being. Here are four more series that are exploring darkness and spirituality:

###The Lost Years
