The show follows eight characters from around the world who, in the aftermath of a tragic death, find themselves linked to each other mentally and emotionally… They can not only see and talk to each other as though they were in the same place, they have access to each other’s deepest secrets… Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.
The show was created by the Wachowskis (they are the brains behind the Matrix trilogy) and stars Naveen Andrews, Daryl Hannah, Brian J. Smith, Tuppence Middleton, Aml Ameen, Freema Agyeman, Tena Desae and Doona Bae.
Apparently, early reviews are not very flattering, with Variety referring to it as “…mumbo jumbo” (that must really hurt). This however does not in the least sense (no pun intended) make me want to watch it less. I have a feeling that it’s one I’ll love to watch. The good news is that the reviews were written solely on the first 3 episodes, so there’s hope things will pick up after that.
Netflix recently released a concept trailer for the show which you can watch below. Further down is the first trailer which they released some weeks ago.
