'Lost,' 'Stargate Universe' actors among 14-person cast of Wachowskis' sci-fi Netflix series

Netflix has assembled a massive cast for Sense8, the newest sweeping sci-fi project from Andy and Lana Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski.

EW has confirmed that Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews (Lost), and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe, Broadway’s The Glass Menagerie) are among the 14-person international ensemble, first reported by Deadline. READ FULL STORY

Netflix orders 10 episodes of the Wachowskis' 'Sense8'

Netflix is going to space: The content provider-cum-content creator has announced a 10-episode order for the first season of Sense8. The series comes from the melded minds of the Wachowski siblings, in their first TV project, and Babylon 5’s J. Michael Straczynski.

The sci-fi thriller is described as “a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted” and will premiere late next year — presumably, all in one sitting. It was born from a late-night conversation among the Wachowskis, “several years ago,” about the ways in which technology is great but also terrible. “Out of that paradox Sense8 was born,” Andy and Lana said in a statement.

The show joins the buzzy slate of programming that will fill out the rest of Netflix’s year, including Jenji Kohan’s Orange is the New Black, the trip-trip-trippy Hemlock Grove, and (didn’t you hear?) Arrested Development. It looks like Straczynski will oversee the day-to-day (his Studio JMS is a partner alongside Georgeville Television) while the Wachowskis deposit their constellation of ideas while working on Warner Bros.’ Jupiter Ascending.

The rest of us, meanwhile, will wait and wonder about how, exactly, to pronounce the title. Is it a pun? It is a clue? Speculate away.
