Universal TV Inks Overall Deal with Hulu’s ‘The Way’ Creator Jessica Goldberg

“Parenthood” alum Jessica Goldberg has signed an overall deal with Universal Television, Variety has learned.

Under the new two-year pact, Goldberg — who created Hulu’s upcoming drama “The Way” — will develop new projects in addition to continuing to serve as exec producer on “The Way,” which begins shooting today.

Jessica Goldberg is an incredibly talented writer, and we’re thrilled to be in business with her at the studio,” said Bela Bajaria, president of Universal Television. “Her work on ‘Parenthood’ was extraordinary and she created a new powerful drama, ‘The  Way,’ for Hulu that has attracted an A-list cast. We are excited to go into production this week and look forward to great things to come.”

“The Way” stars “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and “Hannibal’s” Hugh Dancy. The series, which follows a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, will reunite Goldberg with “Parenthood” creator Jason Katims, who is exec producing the Hulu project by way of his True Jack Prods., along with Universal.

On “Parenthood,” Goldberg — also a playwright and a Juilliard graduate — worked as a producer and writer for multiple seasons. Her other credits include NBC’s “Camp” and “Deception.”

She is repped by UTA and McKuin Frankel Whitehead LLP.
