Hugh Dancy won’t be twiddling his thumbs after Hannibal comes to an end: The actor has found his next gig in the faith-based Hulu drama The Way.
Exec-produced in part by Parenthood boss Jason Katims, the 10-episode series examines a family — led by Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul and True Detective‘s Michelle Monaghan — at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power.
Dancy will play cult leader Cal Roberts, who is the charismatic face of the movement, which is known as The Way. As he battles personal demons and strives to take the organization into its next generation, Cal develops a complicated relationship with Monaghan’s Sarah and Paul’s Eddie.
The Way will debut on Hulu in early 2016. Hannibal, meanwhile, airs Saturdays at 10/9c on NBC.
