Hulu announced today that it will premiere its original series “The Path” on March 30, 2016.
First announced in March 2015, the 10-episode series was previously titled “The Way.” It will examine a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power. It stars Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”), Michelle Monaghan (“Source Code”), Hugh Dancy (“Hannibal”) and Rockmond Dubar (“The Mentalist”).
“The Path” is being produced for Hulu by Universal Television and Jason Katims’ (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) True Jack Productions. Creator Jessica Goldberg is writing and executive producing the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack.
Hulu has been making a big push into originals this year with well-received sitcoms such as “Difficult People” and “Casual,” both of which have been renewed for second seasons, and the action-comedy anthology/behind the scenes documentary series “RocketJump: The Show.” Other upcoming Hulu originals include “11/22/63″ (premiering on Presidents Day 2016), a J.J. Abrams-produced mini-series based on the Stephen King novel of the same name about a teacher (James Franco) who travels back in time to present the JFK assassination.
