Netflix Announces Original Sci-Fi Series Sense8 Directed By the Wachowskis
Dipping its feet into original content programming once again, Netflix has announced Sense8, a new sci-fi series directed by the Wachowskis, the pair of siblings behind The Matrix films.
Sense8 is described as "a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted," according to a Netflix announcement. The series will debut to Netflix members for on-demand watching in late 2014.
The 10-episode Season One of Sense8 will be the first television project from the Wachowskis and the latest project from veteran show runner J. Michael Straczynski, creator of the Babylon 5 television series, whose film credits include Changeling, Thor and Underworld Awakening.
"Andy and Lana Wachowski and Joe Straczynski are among the most imaginative writers and gifted visual storytellers of our time," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "Their incredible creations are favorites of Netflix members globally and we can't wait to bring Sense8 to life."
"We're excited to work with Netflix and Georgeville Television on this project, and we've wanted to work with Joe Straczynski for years, chiefly due to the fact his name is harder to pronounce than ours, but also because we share a love of genre and all things nerdy," said Andy and Lana Wachowski . "Several years ago, we had a late night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us, and out of that paradox Sense8 was born."
Sense8 is being produced by Georgeville Television, in association with Studio JMS. Georgeville Television is a Reliance Entertainment company and independent television studio, formed by veteran film and television producer Marc Rosen, in partnership with Motion Picture Capital's Leon Clarance and Producer Deepak Nayar. Formed in 2012, Georgeville Television currently has two series in pre-production, including NBC's Crossbones starring John Malkovich. Rosen, Clarance and Nayar will serve as executive producers on Sense8.
The Wachowskis are still very much in the motion picture business, too. The directors are starting production next month on their new sci-fi adventure, Jupiter Ascending, for Warner Brothers, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.
