Paul, who recently came under fire for pranking "Breaking Bad" fans with the promise of a Jesse-centric spinoff (and then pulling out with a cheap "jk!"), will star as the male lead opposite Michelle Monoghan in the Jason Katims-fronted drama.
Paul will also be taking on the role of co-producer for the 10-episode project.
According to the press release via Hulu:
"'The Way' comes to Hulu from Universal Television and Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions and was created by Jessica Goldberg who will write and executive-produce the series, along with Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions.
Paul will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to a controversial movement with a wayward past. He’s a husband (to “Sarah Cleary” played by Michelle Monaghan) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he’s come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged. The Way 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."
The series is currently slated for a winter premier.
