Origin: First trailer released for YouTube sci-fi series – SDCC

Well this looks very interesting indeed. The first trailer for new YouTube original series Origin has landed online, and based on the first footage its one to look out for.

Featuring a feast of British talent including Tom Felton and Natalia Tena, Origin tells the story of a group of people who leave Earth in order to run from their damaged lives and make a fresh start on a newly colonised planet.

From what the show’s producers said at the Comic-Con panel that accompanied the trailer, the structure is not unlike Lost, with 60 per cent of the action taking place on the ship the characters find themselves trapped on and 40 per cent in flashback to their pasts.

That’s no bad thing, of course, and anyone paying attention to Tom Felton has been waiting for him to find a good vehicle for a while.

Philipp Christopher, Nina Wadia, Madalyn Horcher, Siobahn Cullen, Adelayo Adedayo and Wil Coban also star. Watch the trailer below:
