Hulu has announced an origin point for its latest drama, “The Path,” set to debut March 30.

The series focuses on a single family caught in the sway of a controversial cult, which forces them to question all they believe about faith, family and fidelity.

This examination of the darker side of belief seems like a departure for executive producer Jason Katims, who built his brand on family-friendly fare like “Friday Night Lights” and “Parenthood.” “The Path” comes from Universal Television and Katims’ True Jack Productions. Also executive-producing the series are True Jack’s head of development, Michelle Lee, and “Parenthood” alum Jessica Goldberg, who created the series and will write the whole of the 10-episode series.


“The Path” also boasts a cast full of fan favorites, including Aaron Paul, in his first return to live-action television since the conclusion of “Breaking Bad” in 2013. Joining Paul are Hugh Dancy (“Hannibal”), Michelle Monaghan (“True Detective”) and Rockmond Dunbar (“Terriers”).
