Story Details for The Wachowskis' Netflix Series SENSE8

TV The Wachowski's by Joey Paur

Last year it was announced that the Wachowskis and J. Michael Straczynski teamed up with Netflix to develop a new sci-fi series called Sense8. Thanks to TVLine we have some new information on the series and the story it will tell. It sounds incredibly cool, and it will take us on a worldwide journey where minds link and souls are hunted.

"The sci-fi drama will focus on eight people scattered around the globe who are connected by a shared — violent — vision. (Because it’s never a vision of kittens, is it?) Each episode — shot in the UK, Seoul, Mumbai, Nairobi, Berlin, Mexico City, San Francisco and Chicago — will follow the characters’ separate stories, even as one entity tries to bring the octet together and another tries to kill them.

Among the regulars (as yet uncast) are: a closeted Mexican telenovela hunk, an Icelandic party girl, a German safe-cracker, a Korean businesswoman, an African bus driver and a transgender American blogger (a la Lana?). Perhaps most intriguing, though, are Jonas, an apparently magic African-American who appears to all of the 'visionaries,' and his evil counterpart, Mr. Whispers (arguably the best-named villain since The X-Files’ Cigarette-Smoking Man)."

The series will be available to watch in late 2014. It sounds really cool, and I'm very excited to see it!
