What if you woke up one day and suddenly you had the memories, knowledge, and skills of yourself and seven other people? You could suddenly speak other languages, have abilities that would otherwise take years of training, and have the memories of the seven others. Sounds pretty cool, right?
On the other hand, you’d also have no secrets from these people and you could never truly have solitude now that you’re essentially part of a hive mind; sort of like the Borg, but without all the built-in tech. Not sounding quite as great, is it? On Friday, June 5, Netflix will be exploring this idea with the release of all 12 episodes of Sense8, a thriller from the Wachowskis. Check out the trailer and you’ll see some familiar faces from past genre series.
One moment links 8 minds in disparate parts of the world, putting 8 strangers in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger.
All 12 episodes of the global dramatic thriller will launch Friday, June 5 only on Netflix.
From the unparalleled creative minds of The Wachowskis (“The Matrix” trilogy, “Cloud Atlas”) and J. Michael Straczynski (Clint Eastwood’s “Changeling,” ”World War Z”), as well as Grant Hill (“The Matrix” trilogy, “Cloud Atlas”).
The international cast includes: Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen and Max Riemelt. Also, Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews, Terrence Mann, Freema Agyeman, Alfonso Herrera, Erendira Ibarra, Adam Shapiro, Ness Bautista and Joe Pantoliano.
Unlike anything seen on television before, Sense8 pushes the boundaries in style, scope and story. For more information about #Sense8, follow the series on Twitter.
