Hugh Dancy has joined the cast of Hulu’s “The Way,” the premium streaming service announced Tuesday.
The series, created by Jessica Goldberg, examines a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, with each episode taking an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want.
Dancy will play Cal Roberts, the charismatic face of The Way, entangled in a complicated relationship with two other members of the movement, Sarah (Michelle Monaghan) and her conflicted husband, Eddie (Aaron Paul).
Cal will battle personal demons and bold ambition as he strives to take the organization into its next generation.
“The Way” will shoot in New York in September and will premiere with 10 episodes in early 2016.
The show comes to Hulu from Universal Television and Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions and was created by Goldberg who will write and executive-produce the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions.
Dancy currently plays Will Graham on NBC’s “Hannibal,” which is still searching for a home after the broadcast network announced it will not be renewed for a fourth season. He is represented by UTA and Gene Parseghian.
