Hulu’s highly anticipated new drama series “The Path” held a special red carpet screening Monday night at the ArcLight Theatre in Hollywood to rave reviews. The new show from executive producers Jason Katims, Michelle Lee and Jessica Goldberg debuts March 30 on the streaming network, but you can get your first look at the characters played by Aaron Paul, Michelle Monaghan and Hugh Dancy by watching the trailer above. Will this show be an Emmy favorite for Hulu?
According to Hulu’s official description, “The Path” takes an in-depth look at the gravitational pull of belief and what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want. At the center of the cult-like Meyerist Movement in New York is Eddie (Paul), a conflicted husband; Sarah (Monaghan), his devoted wife; and Cal (Dancy), an ambitious leader. We follow each as they contend with deep issues involving relationships, faith and power.
In Gold Derby’s predictions center, you can forecast whether Paul, Monaghan or Dancy will earn Emmy nominations for their new roles and if the show will enter into the Best Drama Series lineup. Don’t forget, there is at least one slot open for Drama Series because “Mad Men” is no longer on the air. Will “The Path” take that open slot?
Paul currently holds the Emmy record for most wins as Best Drama Supporting Actor (“Breaking Bad” in 2010, 2012 and 2014), but will he now find success in the Lead Actor race? Meanwhile, this would be the first Emmy nom for Monaghan and the second for Dancy after a Best TV Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actor bid for “Elizabeth I” (2006).
