Netflix's new original program will be sci-fi thriller 'Sense8' Netflix has announced its next original program will be the sci-fi thriller "Sense8."
The show will be directed by the Wachowski brothers, the team behind "The Matrix" and J. Michael Straczynski, the creator of Babylon 5.

"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," added 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."

The first season of the series will be 10 episodes and will be made available in the Q3 2013.

As a longtime fan of both JMS and the Wachowskis, my interest in this prospective series might be sufficiently keen on that basis alone to join up for Netflix service.

Moomoo is correct. If House of Cards was anything to go by, this will definitely be something to look forward to.
