Plot details are, at this point, extremely sparse, but Babylon 5 creator Joe Straczynski is also involved, so don’t be surprised if Sense8 draws influences from his space opera cult classic. “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 the Wachowskis. “Several years ago, we had a latenight conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us, and out of that paradox Sense8 was born.”
