What the heck is a shut eye? You’ll find out in this new teaser for the Hulu original series of the same name. 

Diving into the underworld of psychic storefronts in Los Angeles, the Shut Eye footage offers a simple definition: “It’s a magician that starts believing his own tricks.” That is, in essence, the plot of the show.

Shut Eye follows Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan), a failed magician who became a con man to oversee a chain of psychic parlors for the Marks family empire. After suffering a blow to the head from one of his clients during a hypnosis session with a prospective clairvoyant, Charlie begins seeing visions that may or may not be real but nonetheless force him to re-evaluate what he believes to be true. 

The cast includes KaDee Strickland as Charlie’s wife and Isabella Rossellini as the Marks family’s matriarch. Emmanuelle Chriqui, Susan Misner, Angus Sampson, and David Zayas also star. 

Shut Eye will be available on Hulu beginning this Dec. 7. Watch the new teaser above.
