Hulu Aaron Paul Cult Drama ‘The Path’ Sets 2016 Premiere, First Teaser
Amid all the Hannibal news of late, we’d known that Hugh Dancy and Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul would headline Hulu religious drama The Way with Michelle Monaghan, and at last we know where The Path will begin. In addition to a name-change, Hulu has set a March 2016 premiere for the Jason Katims drama, along with its first teaser.
Per Hulu’s official announcement, which cements The Path as the new series’ title rather than The Way (apparently owing to legal reasons), we can expect the new drama to debut its first installment on March 30, 2016. The first teaser doesn’t reveal much for now, but the star power remains enough to keep us hooked for now.
Created by writer-executive producer Jessica Goldberg, with Parenthood alum Katims and Michelle Lee also producing, Hulu’s The Path follows a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, each episode taking an in-depth look at the choice between “the life we live and the life we want.”
Paul will take the role of Eddie Cleary, convert to the controversial movement with a wayward past of his own, while Dancy will play Cal Roberts, charismatic face of “The Path.” Roberts is also “entangled in a complicated relationship” with Eddie and his wife, Sarah (True Detective star Michelle Monaghan), battling personal demons and bold ambition as he strives to take the organization into its next generation.
