Wachowskis go to Netflix

Netflix will bring Georgeville Television’s Sense8, a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted, exclusively to its members to watch instantly in late 2014.

The 10 episode season one of Sense8 marks the first foray into television by the Wachowskis, the creative geniuses behind Bound, The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, V for Vendetta, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas, and is the latest project from veteran show runner J. Michael Straczynski, creator of the Hugo Award-winning Babylon 5 TV series and whose film credits include Changeling, Thor and Underworld Awakening,

“Andy and Lana Wachowski and Joe Straczynski are among the most imaginative writers and gifted visual storytellers of our time,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “Their incredible creations are favourites of Netflix members globally and we can’t wait to bring Sense8 to life.”

"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."

“We are proud to be working with Netflix on this new series,” said Straczynski.  “Lana, Andy, and I are fans of each other’s creations, and have been looking for something to do together for nearly a decade.”

Sense8 is being produced by Georgeville Television, in association with Studio JMS.  Georgeville Television is a Reliance Entertainment company and independent television studio, formed by veteran film and television producer Marc Rosen, in partnership by Motion Picture Capital’s Leon Clarance and Producer Deepak Nayar.  Formed in 2012, Georgeville Television currently has two series in pre-production, including NBC’s Crossbones starring John Malkovich. Rosen, Clarance, and Nayar will serve as executive producers on Sense8.

Studio JMS, launched last year by Straczynski and CEO Patricia Tallman, was founded to produce a wide range of film, television, comics and other media properties.  In addition to The Flickering Light, Straczynski’s feature directorial debut, and Sense8, Studio JMS has created a new comics imprint, Joe’s Comics, published in partnership with Image Comics.  Its first series, “Ten Grand,” will debut in May. In addition to Sense8, Motion Picture Capital is producing The Flickering Light, which begins filming in Berlin later this year.

“Sense8 is a dream-come-true creatively, and we look forward to working closely with our new partners at Netflix, with whom we could not be more excited to bring the Wachowski’s first TV series ever to life,” said Rosen. 

The Wachowskis are starting production next month on their new sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending for Warner Brothers, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.

“We're delighted to once again partner with Joe, and have the opportunity to work with Lana and Andy, two of our movie-making heroes, on their television debut,” said Clarance.  “They have created a brilliant concept, which will be a wonderful story to produce, and a rich conceptual world for viewers to experience.”
