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

The Path on Hulu

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.
