After picking up the television rights to Robert Kirkman and Paul Azeceta's Outcast series months before the comics' actual debut, Cinemax has now greenlit the project for pre-production according to Kirkman.

Although some news outlets are reporting this as a pilot order for Outcast, pre-production is the stage before shooting where cast and crew members are hired. Going into pre-production does mean that the pilot script for Outcast has been approved by Cinemax, and funding is in place should Cinemax give the go ahead for the filming of a pilot.
