The Wachowskis Developing Secretive TV Series SENSE8 with J. Michael Straczynski | Collider
And Speed Racer is a TREMENDOUS movie. I said it.Filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski (or “The Wachowski Starship” as they affectionately called themselves at Fantastic Fest) are currently enjoying an overwhelmingly passionate response to recent festival screenings of their adaptation of Cloud Atlas, and now it looks like the Matrix helmers are looking to bring some of their magic to the television world. Variety reports that the Wachowskis are currently shopping a TV series called Sense8 to multiple outlets.
Details are unsurprisingly under wraps, but the duo have been developing the idea for some time with writer/Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Stracynski so it’s safe to assume that it will likely have some sort of genre element. The Wachowskis are expected to direct at least a few episodes of the show, and they’re currently looking for a multi-episode order for the hourlong series.
Good news! We'll be getting a lot more of J.J. Abrams' Revolution | Blastr
No, it's not an outright renewal—but according to Deadline, the network has been impressed enough to go ahead and extend the 13-episode order to a full season, which likely means around an additional nine episodes to round things out with about 22 total episodes in season one.
Hurm. Like Rhona Mitra...and Tywin Lannister is always good. Anybody watch this? It looks a little cheap-y. Like Skinemax's other softcore shows.Rhona Mitra joined “Strike Back” in the current season as Major Rachel Dalton, the new commanding officer of Section 20 as they take on Conrad Knox (Charles Dance), a billionaire with a private army who has obtained nuclear weapons.
It's so ridiculously cheesy. 2 spies from Section 20 against 55 armed and trained mercenaries and they manage to shoot or fight their way out of it. British spies with the best of intentions constantly being hampered by turncoats or government figures who just don't "get it."
And you just can't help but cheer for Section 20 every step of the way.
