Hulu Gives Straight-to-Series Order to Family Drama 'The Way' from Jason Katims & Jessica Goldberg

Hulu has handed out a 10-episode straight-to-series order to its first ongoing scripted drama The Way. The drama was created by Jessica Goldberg, who will write and executive produce the series, along with Jason Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions.

The Way 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.

Production on the drama will begin this summer for a late 2015 or early 2016 debut. Universal Television and True Jack Productions are producing.

"Jason Katims is responsible for the most groundbreaking shows about family seen through unique lenses," said Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Hulu. "He and Jessica Goldberg have delivered a provocative take on a controversial, dangerous and thrilling world."
