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.
