Created and executive produced by Les Bohem, Shut Eye centers on Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan), a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling storefronts and who 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.
Bean will play Foster Hillburn, a buttoned up and ambitious Assistant U.S. District Attorney who is also a multi-faceted single dad. He’s building a Rico case against the Romani crime families operating in and around Los Angeles. Foster pursues Rita’s (Isabella Rossellini) cooperation — but whether she’ll submit or not remains to be seen.
