Jeffrey Donovan has been tapped to star in Hulu’s original series Shut Eye, which delves into the underground world of Los Angeles’ storefront psychics and the organizaed crime syndicate that runs them, the streaming service announced Friday.

The Burn Notice and Fargo star will play Charlie Haverford, a failed magician who now works as a psychic/con man overseeing a number of fortune-telling parlors in Los Angeles. Employed for many years by a Romani kingpin, Charlie’s life is going nowhere until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset. He then starts to experience visions that may or may not be real that make him question everything he has ever believed. When his wife urges him to break out on his own, he’s careful, because he knows that one wrong move will land him in a shallow grave.
