"Sense8," the sci fi thriller from J. Michael Straczynski and Andy and Lana Wachowski, will make its Netflix debut on June 5.
The Wachowskis' first television venture, the series is touted as “a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted.”
Brian J. Smith (SGU Stargate Universe), Tuppence Middleton (Jupiter Ascending), Aml Ameen (The Maze Runner), Doona Bae (Cloud Atlas), Miguel Silvestre (Velvet), Tena Desae (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Max Riemelt (Amnesia) and Jamie Clayton (Dirty Work) play eight characters who are both emphatically linked -- which gives them the ability to access each other's thoughts, feelings and deepest secrets -- and hunted by an organization that wants to learn more about this power through any means possible.
Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), Naveen Andrews (Lost), Freema Agyeman (Doctor Who), Alfonso Herrera, Erendira Ibarra and Terrence Mann (The Dresden Files) also star.
The 10-episode series was ordered in March 2013.
