Straczynski’s Back

Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of Sense8, a science fiction drama produced by Andy and Lana Wachowski in partnership with J. Michael Straczynski.

Just what it will be about has yet to be made public. The Wachowskis only toldThe Hollywood Reporter —

“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.”

The show will debut in late 2014.

  1. Sense8 was the name of a Virtual Reality firm about 20 years ago. There might be a trademark issue if they are still in business. There is a chapter about them in my 1993 book, “Virtual Reality and the Exploration of Cyberspace on pages 154 to 157. They did a lot of work for NASA and one of the principals, Ken Pimental, also wrote a book about Virtual Reality.
