TVLine Items: The Flash Vet's YouTube Drama, Whitford's New Gig and More

Tom Felton Origin

Tom Felton‘s new crew is a far cry from the team at S.T.A.R. Labs: The former Flash series regular and Harry Potter alum will star in YouTube Red’s upcoming sci-fi thriller series Origin, our sister site Deadline reports.

The 10-episode drama centers on a group of strangers who find themselves stranded on a spacecraft bound for a distant planet. As the passengers work together to survive, they discover that one of them is far from who they claim to be. Felton will play an angry young man, who is as much of a threat to himself as he is to those around him.
