Deadline is reporting that Harry Potter stars Tom Felton and Natalia Tena are set to headline the new sci-fi thriller series Origin, which is being produced for YouTube Red.
Created, written and exec produced by Mika Watkins (Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, Troy: Fall of a City), Origin “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.”
Paul W.S. Anderson (Event Horizon, Resident Evil) is directing the first two episodes of the 10-episode series, which is now in production with a cast that also includes Sen Mitsuji, Adelayo Adedayo, Nina Wadia, Johannes Johannesson, Wil Coban and Tara Fitzgerald.
Origin is slated to premiere on YouTube Red later this year.
