Michelle Monaghan (True Detective, Source Code) has been tapped as the female lead in the Hulu original drama series The Way (working title). Mike Cahill (Another Earth) will direct the first episode of the 10-episode series, from creator Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims’ True Jack Productions and Universal Television.
The Way examines a family at the center of a controversial movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power, with each episode taking an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. Monaghan will play Sarah Cleary, a high level member of a controversial movement navigating the truths — and untruths — colliding in her life.
The Way, executive produced by Goldberg, Katims and Michelle Lee, is slated to begin production in the summer for a winter debut.
Cahill recently directed the Syfy pilot The Magicians. Monaghan is with ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion and Sloane Offer.
