Hulu is getting into the Jason Katims business — and vice versa — by ordering straight to series The Way, a 10-episode drama about a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement, and its struggles with relationships, marriage and power.
The series marks the Parenthood/Friday Night Lights showrunner’s first non-network project. Parenthood scribe/producer Jessica Goldberg will write and exec-produce The Way, along with Katims and Michelle Lee.
“Jason Katims is responsible for the most groundbreaking shows about family seen through unique lenses,” Hulu SVP Craig Erwich said in a statement. “He and Jessica Goldberg have delivered a provocative take on a controversial, dangerous and thrilling world.”
“Craig Erwich and his team at Hulu have been so passionate from our first meeting,” Katims said. “It’s been a creatively rewarding, truly collaborative process from Day 1 with them.”
Production on The Way will commence this summer.
