Looks like Aaron Paul is heading back to the small screen for a lead role in a new drama for Hulu called 'The Way', from Friday Night Lights and Parenthood writer Jason Katims.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Way "examines a family at the center of a controversial faith-based movement struggling with relationships, marriage and power. Each hour-long episode will take an in-depth look at what it means to choose between the life we live and the life we want."

Aaron, who will also serve as a producer on the series, is set to play a character called Eddie Cleary, a long-time member of The Way, who returns from a retreat with other members of the movement distant and shook up from what he has witnessed. All this leads to his wife (True Detective's Michelle Monaghan) suspecting he is having an affair but Eddie is really sneaking off to meet with a still unknown person who claims to know "the truth" about The Way.

It all actually sounds as weird and bizarre as the first series of True Detective was at times, although if it's half as good as that was they won't be doing too badly.

It also could be just what Aaron Paul needs to escape from the shadow of Jesse Pinkman, God knows he must be fed up of saying 'yeah bitch' twenty million times a day.

The 10-episode drama series is set to go into production in the summer for a winter premiere.
