Filmmaker Andy Wachowski and his transgender sister Lana are following in the footsteps of Golden Globe winner David Fincher by directing an original series for Netflix.

The Matrix masterminds will team up with Babylon creator J. Michael Straczynski to release 10 episodes of Sense8, a science fiction-themed show, on the online streaming service next year (14).

A statement from the pair reads, "We've wanted to work with Joe Straczynski for years, chiefly due to the fact his name is harder to pronounce than ours, but also because we share a love of genre and all things nerdy. Several years ago, we had a late night conversation about the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us, and out of that paradox Sense8 was born."

Fincher directed the first two episodes of Netflix's hit original series House of Cards, which stars Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
