It was announced today that Andy and Lana Wachowski will be producing a show for Netflix with Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. Beyond being great news for fans of "skis," the show, Sense8, will be the Wachowskis' first foray into "television." Its ten-episode first season is scheduled to premiere in late 2014. There's no word yet on what the show will be about, but considering the source, we imagine it'll involve future-space-robots.
