YouTube Red’s Sci-Fi Series “Origin” Casts Up

“Harry Potter” film alums Natalia Tena and Tom Felton, and newcomer Sen Mitsuji, are set to topline YouTube’s upcoming sci-fi thriller series “Origin” for Left Bank Pictures, Midnight Radio, CiTVC and Sony Pictures Television International Productions.

Created, written and exec produced by Mika Watkins, the ten-episode series follows a group of strangers who find themselves stranded on a spacecraft bound for a distant planet.

The abandoned passengers must work together for survival, but quickly realize that one of them is far from who they claim to be.

Nora Arnezeder, Fraser James, Philipp Christopher, Madalyn Horcher, Siobhan Cullen, Adelayo Adedayo, Nina Wadia, Johannes Johannesson, Wil Coban and Tara Fitzgerald co-star.

Paul W.S. Anderson (“Resident Evil,” “Event Horizon”) is directing the first two episodes and production is now underway in South Africa ahead of a premiere on Youtube Red later this year.
