Sense8Imagine you weren't just you -- you also had seven other people in your head. But not in a crazy, multiple-personality kind of way. What if eight strangers were mysteriously connected mentally and emotionally?

That's the premise of Netflix's upcoming new drama "Sense8," from the Wachowskis of "Matrix" fame. Their most recent movie, "Jupiter Ascending," was a bomb in every sense of the word, but "Sense8" has a similar eerie, foreboding quality that "The Matrix" franchise had.

Plus, you've got a diverse cast in many different locations. "We can access each other's knowledge, language, skills," Naveen Andrews explains to one of the eight. And this is the Wachowskis, so there's plenty of action and fight scenes.

The series stars Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Jamie Clayton, Miguel Angel Silvestre, Tina Desai, Doona Bae, Aml Ameen and Max Riemelt. All 12 episodes will be available to stream on Netflix on June 5.
