‘The Path’ Creator on Why Her Hulu Movement Isn’t Scientology (Video)

TCA 2016: “The internet is full of misinformation,” Jessica Goldberg pans any similarities

Hulu’s “The Path” depicts a religious movement — really, a cult — one that is most definitely not social commentary on Scientology, the series creator clarified.

“No, I guess the Internet is full of misinformation,” Jessica Goldberg told reporters Saturday at the Television Critics Association press event. “I’m a sort of faith-interested person, but I don’t follow anything [specific].”

“This show really came out of a more personal experience for me, where a few years ago I had the double-whammy of losing a parent and getting divorced in one year,” the executive producer continued. “I found my little universe I deeply believed in.”

She also grew up in Woodstock, so there’s that exposure to the hippie-dippy.

Anyway, eat that, online rumors.

“The Path” stars Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan, Rockmond Dunbar and Hugh Dancy. In addition to Goldberg, Jason Katims is also executive producing the streaming series.

For more “The Path,” watch the teaser above, which debuted on Saturday.
