First Trailer for the Second Season of YouTube's Jumper Series Impulse

YouTube has released the first trailer for the upcoming second season of the fantastically made series Impulse, which is based on Steven Gould's Jumper book series.

In the upcoming second season of Impulse, “Henry Coles life suddenly changes when a traumatic event awakens within her a dangerous ability beyond her understanding and control: teleportation.

Cobra Kai: YouTube Releases Season 1 for Free, Will Do Same for Season 2

Joseph Baxter Aug 29, 2019

YouTube Premium's Cobra Kai will, for a limited window, be viewable for free, starting with Season 1.

Cobra Kai is kicking through its YouTube Premium paywall, making an experimental transition to free viewing!

The entirety of Cobra Kai’s first season, which arrived back in 2018, is being released for the first time outside the subscription auspices of YouTube Premium, with the caveat of the episodes being presented in ad-supported form. Moreover, along with some other YouTube Premium content, the show’s second season – still relatively fresh from its April 24 premiere – will also be made available in free-but-ad-filled form on September 11. However, as mentioned, this is an experimental transition, and, consequently, the free availability will be limited – at least, for now, anyway.

As YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl says of the ad-supported experiment in a statement.

“Today, we are welcoming a global audience to enjoy our award-winning series and specials.

Maddie Hasson (‘Impulse’) on playing a sexual assault survivor with ‘extraordinary ability’ and a ‘raw nerve’ personality [Exclusive Video Interview]

Maddie Hasson (‘Impulse’) on playing a sexual assault survivor with ‘extraordinary ability’ and a ‘raw nerve’ personality [Exclusive Video Interview]
Maddie Hasson was drawn to “Impulse” because she found the protagonist, Henrietta “Henry” Coles, to be “really interesting, especially for a young female character.” Based on the book series by Steven Gould, the YouTube Originals series centers on a teenager who discovers she possesses powers of teleportation following a sexual assault. A version of this story was previously filmed by Doug Liman as the 2007 film “Jumper.” The filmmaker then brought the show to the streaming network and directed the pilot episode. Watch our exclusive video interview with Hasson above.

The actress describes Henry as “a very lonely person. She’s always on her own. I liked her because she’s like a raw nerve. She’s very angry, real and harsh. I liked seeing that in a young female character because I think so often young adult TV shows can get caught up … in being likable.

Lauren LeFranc (‘Impulse’ showrunner) on dealing with sexual assault and trauma in a genre series [Exclusive Video Interview]
Lauren LeFranc reveals that “Impulse” got its start when director Doug Liman met with YouTube to try and right a cinematic wrong. According to LeFranc, he said that his 2007 science-fiction film “Jumper” was “the only movie that I’ve never really been happy with, and I think I can do better.” He had intended it to be “a coming-of-age story, and it became something different from the studio.” This new series, on which LeFranc serves as showrunner, was an opportunity to tell the story the way it was meant to be. Watch our exclusive video interview with LeFranc above.

‘Wayne’: YouTube Series Looks Like ‘End of the F**ing World’ Meets ‘Kick-Ass’

Two teenagers on the run, looking for answers, trying to evade adult authority figures, dealing with their own repressed rage, in a series that premieres in January. It’s a template that worked for “The End of the F**ing World” this year, and the new YouTube Premium series “Wayne” looks like it’s aiming to follow in its footsteps.

“Wayne” follows the journey of its title character as he tracks down the TransAm his dying father bequeathed to him. As he navigates a criminal underworld with people willing to tie 16-year-old kids up and torture them for information, he takes on an adventure partner in Del (Ciara Bravo), who, judging by the trailer YouTube Premium unveiled, looks like she can handle herself beyond her years.

“Episodes” vet Iain B. MacDonald directed the “Wayne” pilot, while creator Shawn Simmons is a writer on the 10-episode series, set to premiere on YouTube Premium early next year.

Connecting the Dots from Bush to Trump: Doug Liman Recuts His 8-Year-Old Valerie Plame Movie ‘Fair Game’

Connecting the Dots from Bush to Trump: Doug Liman Recuts His 8-Year-Old Valerie Plame Movie ‘Fair Game’
Doug Liman is an independent filmmaker who gets away with murder in Hollywood because he boasts a string of major hits, from “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and “The Bourne Identity” to “Edge of Tomorrow.” He often throws sets into chaos in order to achieve unexpected results. “My films have been successful and therefore the process has accommodated me,” he once told me. “When the studio said ‘no,’ I did it anyhow. Now, they don’t say no to me.”

Indeed. Liman’s films are consistently watchable and entertaining in their quirky unpredictability, even with his misfires (see: “Jumper”). Indie-financed “Fair Game” (Summit Entertainment), which earned mixed reviews (Metascore: 69) and struggled at the 2010 box office (domestic total: $9 million), is hardly the usual candidate for a re-release 8 years later. Yet here it is. “I’ve never seen a rule I didn’t think about breaking,” he told me on the phone.

‘Origin’ Trailer: Space Is, Once Again, a Terrifying Place Where No One Should Go in Paul W.S. Anderson’s YouTube Series

In TV, there are very few happy stories about groups of people going to uncharted areas of space. Adding to those list of (likely) doomed space adventurers comes “Origin,” the latest sci-fi offering from YouTube Premium.

At a New York Comic Con panel on Thursday, the show unveiled the official trailer for series, which is set to debut on the subscription service next month. “Origin” is a new intergalactic spin on the classic “Dirty Dozen” trope, taking people with troubled pasts and offering them pardons in exchange for some dangerous mission. This time, that mission takes the people on board a ship bound for a distant planet capable of sustaining life.

As the trailer shows, when this ragtag crew wakes up from suspended animation, they find that some mysterious force as slaughtered all of their fellow passengers. And thus begins the 10-episode-long process of trying to stay alive far, far

Impulse Season 2 Release Date and Trailer

Alec Bojalad Joseph Baxter Sep 12, 2019

YouTube Premium is bringing back Doug Liman's Impulse for another suspenseful season of sci-fi.

YouTube Premium isn't messing around with its sci-fi series, Impulse. Indeed, the show, which premiered back on June 6, 2018, landed a quick renewal for a second season, which was announced less than two months later at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red) cited 8 million viewers for the Impulse pilot in its Comic-Con 2018 renewal confirmation. Thus, Impulse Season 2, like its predecessor, is coming back with a full 10-episode run. It helped that the first season was very well received, and that the popular Cobra Kai helped the new streaming subscription service carve out a viable niche.

Impulse is directed and produced by Bourne Identity and Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. It is adapted the Jumper series of novels from Steven Gould, which also served as the basis for Liman's 2008 film adaptation,

Emmy Fyc event: YouTube Originals enters race with ‘Cobra Kai,’ ‘Impulse,’ and ‘Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes’ [Watch]

YouTube Originals entered the Emmy race with a recent mixer celebrating their new programs. Gold Derby was on-hand at the London Hotel penthouse in West Hollywood, CA, and snagged interviews with the talent behind “Cobra Kai” (Ralph Macchio and William Zabka), “Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television” (Ryan Hansen), and “Impulse” (Maddie Hasson and Doug Liman). Scroll down and click on their names below to be taken to their full interviews.

With the TV landscape expanding every day, it’s not surprising that a video service like YouTube would compete at the Emmys alongside broadcast and cable. After all, Hulu made history last year by becoming the first streaming service to win Best Drama Series for “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And before that Netflix and Amazon made significant breakthroughs in nominations and wins.

YouTube Boss on Streamer’s Future: ‘I Want To Win Some Emmys’

  • Variety
With a string of theatrical releases and the success of original series “Cobra Kai,” YouTube has its sights set on its biggest score yet: the Emmys.

Susanne Daniels, YouTube’s head of original programming, said as the young streamer continues to expand into scripted shows and documentaries, her ultimate goal is “to win some Emmys.” Before that point, through, Daniels said she is looking for “unique, unusual stories and great talent behind them” that align with YouTube’s “youthful and adventurous” programming.

“I am aiming a little bit younger than I think Hulu is aiming and a little bit lighter and more fun,” Daniels told Variety at a celebration for YouTube Originals on Tuesday. “I think ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a fantastic show, but I wouldn’t program ‘Handmaid’s Tale,’ I’ll just go out on a limb and say it: too dark, I think, for YouTube’s brand,

Edge Of Tomorrow Director Doug Liman To Helm a Remake of The Cannonball Run

Doug Liman, who is best known for films such as Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity, Jumper, and the upcoming film Chaos Walking, seems to have found his next film project. The director is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to helm a remake of the classic 1980's action comedy franchise, The Cannonball Run.

The original films starred Burt Reynolds, Frank Sinatra, Roger Moore, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dom DeLuise. The story centered on an illegal cross-country race where the participants played dirty tricks on one another so that they could win. I assume the new film will feature the same premise.

This seems like it would be a fun film project for Liman to take on and I imagine he'd do some great things with it. For the most part, I like the films that Liman has made. He seems to have a knack for blending action and comedy.

Intense Full Trailer For Doug Liman's Jumper Series Impulse

YouTube Red has released a full trailer for the Doug Liman's upcoming sci-fi drama series Impulse. The series is based on Steven Gould's Jumper series and this particular story is based on the third book in that series.

I've been impressed with what I've seen from this show so far and this latest trailer offers us more details on the story that it will tell. The show definitely looks a hell of a lot better than the Jumper movie! Impulse seems to have a much darker, gritty, and grounded tone to it, which I like.

YouTube Red impressed me with Cobra Kai and it looks like they will impress again with Impulse. Here's the synopsis:

16-year-old Henry Coles is an outsider in her new town of Reston, New York. With a major chip on her shoulder and no friends, she remains withdrawn and isolated, but everything changes when
