The Path on Hulu

Jason Katims' Hulu Drama The Way Forges New Path Amid Legal Pressure

Legal issues have forced Hulu to alter the title of its religious-tinged, Jason Katims-produced series The Way, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The 10-episode drama — which stars Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul, Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy and True Detective‘s Michelle Monaghan — will now be known as The Path. (Sources confirm that the original title too closely resembled real-life ministry The Way International.)

Production on the anticipated series began this week in Nyack, New York.

Per Hulu, The Path “examines a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power. Each hour-long episode will take an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want.”

Paul plays Eddie Lane, a convert to the movement with a wayward past, while Monaghan portrays his wife (who’s also the org’s co-leader). Dancy, meanwhile, plays Cal Roberts, the charismatic face of The Path, entangled in a complicated relationship with Sarah and Eddie.

The series is slated to premiere in 2016.

    I’ve been excited about this show ever since the news broke about it’s existence, just because Aaron Paul and Hugh Dancy are starring in it. They’re both very talented actors, and I think they’ll be really great together. I can’t imagine it being bad with Jason Katims involved, either. I can’t wait.

    With a cast like that, sign me up! Aaron Paul was so sexy playing a meth head, imagine what he’ll do playing a relatively normal guy…

    Thanks for sharing! I love Hulu especially because I can watch the latest episodes 1 day after they air. If you live outside USA like me, you can use UnoTelly or other similar tools to access Hulu Plus overseas.

    The first episode was a slow burner but episode two drew me in. Looking forward to the rest of the series after giving it a chance. Great work hulu!
