Hulu May Debut New "Psychic Drama"

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hulu, the streaming service that is going "network," seems ready to order a new series from the team that created Breaking Bad.
The new show, to be called Shut Eye, will be about a criminal organization that operates "store front" psychic operations and someone employed within the organization who suddenly develops psychic abilities and then "who finds his cynical world view challenged."

Variety has a little more info about the show here.
It's been a while since we've had a "psychic" show on the air. Psych went off the air in 2014, The Mentalist ceased airing new episodes earlier this year. Both of those shows featured protagonists who worked with law enforcement but either claimed to have psychic ability but were highly observant (Psych) or faked psychic abilities and then used that knowledge to help solve crimes (The Mentalist). Medium and Ghost Whisperer, both shows about psychics who aided law enforcement to solve crimes, aired from 2005 to 2011 and 2005 to 2010, respectively.
