Hulu Orders Series from HUMANITAS Trustee Jason Katims

Hulu has ordered its first drama series, giving a 10-episode straight-to-series order to The Way, a drama series from creator Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions and Universal Television.

The Way examines a family at the center of a controversial faith–based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power. Each hourlong episode takes an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. “Jason Katims and Jessica Goldberg have delivered a provocative take on a controversial, dangerous and thrilling world,” said Hulu head of content Craig Erwich.

The Way, a very personal project for playwright-screenwriter Goldberg, stems from Katims and Goldberg’s work together on Katims’ NBC series, Parenthood, on which she served as a writer-producer. It was developed as a spec at True Jack by the company’s Katims and Michelle Lee who executive produce alongside Goldberg. The Way, eyed for a summer production start and December debut, marks the first original series for Hulu from corporate sibling Universal TV. It also marks Katims’ first show not sold to a broadcast network. The writer-producer behind Friday Night Lights and Parenthood currently is executive producing NBC comedy series About A Boy.
