The book follows Jesse Custer, a Texas preacher whom has the ability to make anyone do anything he says. 

Negga is the first actor cast in the pilot and will take the role of Jesse’s ex-girlfriend, Tulip,  who joins him on a quest to literally find God. 

She’s described as:

a volatile, action-packed, sexified force of nature, a capable, unrepentant criminal with a love of fashion and ability to construct helicopter-downing bazookas out of coffee cans and corn shine who’s not afraid to steal, kill or corn cob-stab her way out of a bad situation.
