Hulu Nears Series Order For Psychic Drama ‘Shut Eye’

Hulu is close to finalizing a series pickup deal for “Shut Eye,” a drama set in the world of storefront psychics in Los Angeles.

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.

Bohem is coming off a run as a consulting producer on the CBS drama “Extant” and he’s working on the adaptation of “Brave New World” for Syfy. He’s best known for penning the Emmy-winning 2002 Syfy miniseries “Taken” and feature screenplays including “Nightmare on Elm Street 5” and “Dante’s Peak.”
