O Dwayne Johnson ετοιμάζει sci-fi σειρά για το YouTube Red

Το YouTube φαίνεται να σοβαρεύεται όσον αφορά τον εμπλουτισμό του περιεχομένου της συνδρομητικής του υπηρεσίας και επιστρατεύει μεγάλα ονόματα. Έτσι, ανακοίνωσε τέσσερις νέες σειρές για λογαριασμό του YouTube Red, η μία εκ των οποίων έχει ως παραγωγό τον Dwayne The Rock Johnson και η άλλη, έρχεται από τον δημιουργό του "Rick and Morty", Dan Harmon.

Επιπλέον, το 'Impulse' αποτελεί συνέχεια της ταινίας "Jumper" με τον Hayden Christensen και το τρίτο βιβλίο του franchise, το οποίο υπογράφει ο Steven Gould (Lost, NCIS: New Orleans).
