Deadline reports that Netflix has ordered 10-episodes of the series to debut on Netflix Instant in late 2014.
Sense8 is described as “a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted”.
Andy and Lana Wachowski and Joe Straczynski are among the most imaginative writers and gifted visual storytellers of our time,” says Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“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 the Wachowskis in a statement. “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.”
Netflix is due to debut it next original series, the Eli Roth-produced Hemlock Grove, on 19 April. Watch the trailer here.
