BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.,
March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix will bring Georgeville Television's
Sense8, a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted, exclusively to its members to watch instantly in late 2014.
The 10 episode season one of
Sense8 marks the first foray into television by the Wachowskis, the creative geniuses behind
Bound, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer and
Cloud Atlas, and is the latest project from veteran show runner
J. Michael Straczynski, creator of the Hugo Award-winning
Babylon 5 TV series and whose film credits include
Changeling, Thor and
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."
"We are proud to be working with Netflix on this new series," said Straczynski. "Lana, Andy, and I are fans of each other's creations, and have been looking for something to do together for nearly a decade."
