Jeffrey Donovan can light up a nice soothing candle and tell you what your future holds. But it will cost you a few hundred bucks. Good news, he now accepts VISA.
Check out the new full-length trailer for Hulu's latest original series "Shut Eye," in which the former "Burn Notice" star plays a crooked West Coast psychic who, after getting punched in the face, starts to have real visions of the future. The problem is, his so-called visions has empowered him to take on the people who are controlling his fortune-telling business: the Gypsy mafia.
In addition to Donovan, the offbeat crime series also stars KaDee Strickland (Secrets and Lies), Isabella Rossellini (Blue Velvet, Joy), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Murder in the First), Dylan Schmid (Once Upon a Time), David Zayas (Dexter), Mel Harris (Thirtysomething), and Angus Sampson (Insidious).
Greenlit for 10 episodes, "Shut Eye" hails from Les Bohem, the Emmy-winning creator of the 2002 alien abduction miniseries "Taken" and the writer-producer of the short-lived Halle Berry-starring sci-fi series "Extant."
"Shut Eye" premieres Wednesday, December 7 on Hulu.
In the Hulu Original, Shut Eye, Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) is a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling storefronts and contracts building tricks for a family that controls the business in the greater chunk of Los Angeles. A blow to the head from a client’s angry boyfriend intersects with a hypnosis session while auditioning a new "clairvoyant," and suddenly, a man whose entire life has been based on fraud begins to see and feel some very real and fundamental truths. Charlie's wife Linda (KaDee Strickland) is sick and tired of their mediocre life and wants to break away from Fonso (Angus Sampson), the single father who runs the Marks family's psychic empire, and controls the Haverford's future. Rossellini co-stars as Rita, the cunning, seductive, and sadistic matriarch of the Marks clan.
