Sense8 is an American science fiction drama television series created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski for Netflix.  They also created the well-known Matrix series in the late 90’s.

Sense8 tells the story of eight strangers: Riley, Will, Sun, Capheus, Wolfgang, Kala, Lito and Nomi, each from a different culture and part of the world. While living their everyday lives, they suddenly have a vision of the violent death of a woman called Angelica and discover that they are ‘sensates’: otherwise normal humans who are mentally and emotionally connected and who are able to communicate, sense and use each other’s knowledge, language and skills.

Many of our Chicago talent were contacted for auditions for the second season of this popular Netflix show.  The first season of Sense8 premiered last year and was well received by critics.  It is a Netflix exclusive show, so the second season will premiere all at once instead of being released weekly.  Sense8 is an exciting new series that will keep science fiction fans interested with its drama and creativity.  Make sure to check out season 2 once it airs and look for some of our own talent as they prepare to audition for various roles.

In fact, both of his parents and several other people in his family were members of the Black Panther Party.

During the end of Tupac’s career, Shakur was a major participant in the East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry.
