Netflix has turned itself into the most popular paid video streaming destination on the Internet. Netflix works hard and get all sorts of new content from television studios and movie studios. The company also has a few original series that it produces and offers exclusively to its streaming subscribers.

Netflix has announced that it has a new science fiction series in the works called Sense8. The science fiction TV series will come in late 2014 from Georgeville Television. The television series marks the first time that the Wachowskis have ventured into the world of television programming.

Most science fiction fans will recognize the Wachowskis from The Matrix trilogy and other movies they have directed. Another important member of the Sense8 team is J. Michael Stracynski, who is the creator of the popular science fiction TV series Babylon 5 as well as other films such as Thor. The first season of the series will have 10 episodes.

At this point Netflix isn't offering much detail on the science fiction series. Although the official press release says is that Sense8 is "a gripping global tale of minds linked and souls hunted." I wonder if Netflix will offer all 10 episodes of the first season at the same time as it has for some of its other original programs.
