YouTube is promoting Origin, one of the offerings from its new YouTube Premium subscription, to tempt viewers to join the service. Origin looks like a well done space adventure, and it may do the trick of bringing in new subscribers.
A group of people want to get away from their lives, or perhaps are forced into going. In the trailer we hear the line, “What if you could go somewhere so far from all this, you barely remember you’re a part of it?” The promise of life on another planet ends up with a group of people in a space station that seems to be going nowhere. One of the fellow passengers may not be who they claim to be.
The graphics and intergalactic space travel sets and look good. Origin will be available starting November 4.
Tom Felton, Natalia Tena, Philipp Christopher, Adelayo Adedayo, Nora Arnezeder, Belén Fabra, Madalyn Horcher, and Fraser James make up some of the cast.
The 10-episode series was created, written and produced by Mika Watkins. It’s a UK production, and the first big production helmed by Mika Watkins. She’s been involved in several shows you’re familiar with from the UK. YouTube is betting on her with this high production adventure series.
