Matrix Creators’ ‘Sense8′ Unveiled With Doctor Who’s Freema Agyeman

23 June 2014 8:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the focus on Karen Gillan and her meteoric rise, it’s easy to forget there’s another former Doctor Who companion doing well for herself the other side of the pond. Known for playing Martha Jones alongside David Tennant’s Tenth (or Eleventh and Twelfth depending on “Who” you speak to) Doctor, actress Freema Agyeman went on to star in Law & Order: UK before appearing in Sex & The City prequel The Carrie Diaries. That fell off the runway pretty quick, but her next project looks like it has legs.

Boasting a combined showrunner pedigree of Matrix creators Andy and Lana Wachowksi and Babylon 5′s J. Michael Straczynski, international sci-fi drama SENSE8 will be shown on Netflix. Agyeman isn’t the only cult TV alumnus in the mix, with the series also featuring Lost‘s Naveen Andrews and Stargate: Universe‘s Brian J.Smith, not to mention movie star Daryl Hannah. »
