Watch: Hulu’s Trailer for ‘The Path’ Features a Very Distressed Aaron Paul

Hulu has released the full trailer for its new cult drama “The Path,” which stars Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy.

The series follows Eddie (Paul) and Sarah Lane (Monaghan), a married couple whose family is intertwined in a controversial cult-like movement called Meyerism. While Eddie converted to the belief system, Sarah was born into it and serves as an integral figure within the Meyerism community.

Dancy stars as Cal Roberts, the charming, unofficial frontman of the Meyerism movement. As the series progresses, the family’s obligations as Meyerists lead to a string of faith, power and relationship issues. Sarah Jones, Rockmond Dunbar, Emma Greenwell, Kyle Allen and Amy Forsyth also star in the series.

The clip features arresting images from the series including a dicey moment with a snake; an emotional breakdown for Paul; and Dancy with a mouthful of blood. The action is cut to Fleet Foxes hit “White Winter Hymnal.”

“We who follow this path struggle with our relationship with the outside world,” Monaghan intones in the video.

The series was created by “Parenthood” alum Jessica Goldberg. She exec produces along with “Parenthood” creator Jason Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Prods.

“The Path” premieres March 30 on Hulu.

    I really like Paul, though not so sure he will ever hit Breaking Bad heights again, though he is talented, so you never know, but shows about cults are always very similar and very annoying. All cults are full of loosely wrapped people, they all do bad things in the name of doing good things and there is always an uprising or rebellion amongst their ranks. Because of him, I will probably watch the first episode. After that is very iffy especially after a not particularly gripping trailer. It’s on Hulu, so who knows, but if it were a network series, I would predict a flop.
