The Wachowskis Moving to TV for Top-Secret Project 'Sense8'Kevin Fitzpatrick |
Don't think it too terribly presumptive of us to say, but we should all be able to admit that movies are officially dead forever, and the TV has come to dominate the galaxy. Fresh off of 'Cloud Atlas,' The Wachowskis are the next filmmaking dynamos to make their first foray into television developing a mysterious new project with 'Babylon 5' creator J. Michael Straczynski. So just what is 'Sense8,' and when can we expect to see it on the small screen?'
The dominoes are falling, and soon all your movie directions are belong to us TV folk! Lana and Andy Wachowski are ready to come down from the 'Cloud,' and take their talents to TV next with 'Sense8,' reports Variety. The concept for the series is being kept strictly under wraps, but given the 'Matrix'-creating Wachowskis' history of storytelling and fellow project developer J. Michael Straczynski's tenure creating 'Babylon 5,' we'd venture that sci-fi is a safe guess.
The project doesn't yet have a specific network, but is being produced through Georgeville Television. In addition to development, the Wachowskis would likely direct several episodes of the series as well. Straczynski would serve as show-runner, should the series get picked up.
What say you? What potential imagination might the Wachowski's be bringing to the table for 'Sense8?'
