Variety reports that Hulu is poised to pick up Shut Eye, a drama about L.A. storefront psychics.
Les Bohem created the series for Sony TV’s TriStar Productions and “Breaking Bad” and “Rectify” producer Mark Johnson’s Gran Via banner. Johnson and Gran Via’s Melissa Bernstein are exec producing with Bohem. Hulu is expected to give the show a 10-episode straight to series order.
“Shut Eye” is described as a darkly comic look at the activities of storefront psychics and the underground criminal syndicate that controls them. The series centers on a disgruntled former player in the world who begins to experience visions.
An earlier iteration of “Shut Eye” was previously in development at FX.
