Music: “Guerra E Pace, Pollo E Brace” by Ennio Morricone
In the Hulu Original, Shut Eye, Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) is a scammer with a small chain of fortune-telling storefronts and 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. Charlie’s wife Linda (KaDee Strickland) is sick and tired of their mediocre life and wants to break away from Fonso (Angus Sampson), the single father who runs the Marks family’s psychic empire, and controls the Haverford’s future. Rossellini co-stars as Rita, the cunning, seductive, and sadistic matriarch of the Marks clan. Executive produced by creator/showrunner Les Bohem (Extant, Taken) and Gran Via Productions’ Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein (Breaking Bad, Halt & Catch Fire, Rectify).
