Not much is known about "Sense8," Netflix's new series from The Wachowskis ("The Matrix," "Cloud Atlas"), J. Michael Straczynski and Grant Hill. But with a new trailer and photos, we can begin to piece together what may unfold in the 12 episodes available on June 5.
Per Netflix, "'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." That doesn't reveal much, but in an interview with Buzzfeed News, Straczynski described "Sense8" like this: “It’s a global story told on a planetary scale about human transcendence and what it ultimately means to be human in a contemporary society.”
The show will follow eight strangers -- Will (Brian J. Smith), Riley (Tuppence Middleton), Capheus (Aml Ameen), Sun (Bae Doona), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Kala (Tina Desai), Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) and Nomi (Jamie Clayton) -- living in different parts of the world as they find out that they're connected by the death of a sensate, defined as eight people connected by their personalities.
