This will be the 35-year-old actor’s first series since his smash hit Breaking Bad, for which he was the first three-time Emmy Award-winner in the drama supporting actor category!
Aaron will also serve as a producer on the series and his production company Lucid Road Productions has made a first look deal with Universal Television.
Aaron will play Eddie Cleary, a convert to a controversial movement with a wayward past. He’s a husband (to “Sarah Cleary” played by Monaghan) and father who suffers a crisis of faith when all that he’s come to accept as truth in his life is fundamentally challenged.
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. The series is slated to premiere this winter!
