YouTube Red has released the trailer for “Impulse,” its upcoming series adaptation of Steven Gould’s “Jumper” novels. Doug Liman, who helmed the 2008 film adaptation “Jumper,” returns as executive producer on “Impulse”.
The story follows a young teenage outcast named Henry Coles who, after nearly being raped by the popular kid at school, discovers that she has telekinetic abilities. But in the process, her powers crush a truck and nearly kill her would-be assaulter, leaving him paraplegic.
As the town is left reeling by the mysterious accident, Henry is plagued by strange seizures that allow her to telekinetically manipulate things and teleport. Missi Pyle, David James Elliott, and Enuka Okuma co-star in the series with Lauren LeFranc serving as showrunner.
All ten episodes of “Impulse” debut on YouTube Red on June 6th.
