No matter what you think of the Wachowski’s movies after The Matrix, there’s no denying they have plenty of ideas and visual flair… so it might make sense that TV is their natural hope.

So, with that in mind, here’s the first pictures and trailer for their upcoming Netflix series Sense8 and colour us intrigued…

All 12 episodes of the global dramatic thriller will launch ​Friday, June 5 ​only on Netflix and in all Netflix territories around the world. The series will also be available in 4K.

From the unparalleled creative minds of The Wachowskis (The Matrix​ trilogy,​ Cloud Atlas) ​and J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling, World War Z), as well as Grant Hill (The Matrix trilogy, Cloud Atlas), “Sense8″ is a gripping story of eight people from around the world whose lives are suddenly and inexplicably connected in a fight for their own survival.

The international cast includes Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen and Max Riemelt. Also starring are Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews, Terrence Mann, Freema Agyeman, Alfonso Herrera , Erendira Ibarra, Adam Shapiro, Ness Bautista ​and Wachowski vet​ Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix, Bound).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
