YouTube Premiering First Original Movies & PewDiePew Series

YouTube's new subscription service YouTube Red is ready to roll out the company's first-ever original programming on Wednesday, Feb. 10. The three original films set to premiere are Dance Camp, Lazer Team and A Trip to Unicorn Island, featuring popular YouTuber and recent ad campaign star Lilly Singh. Swedish video game vlogger PewDiePie is also getting his own "reality-adventure series" called Scare PewDiePie.

YouTube Red eliminates ads and gives users total access to YouTube Music. Susanne Daniels, an MTV alum now serving as YouTube's global head of original content, says in a blog post:

"The diverse, dynamic creators behind these films have already built massive audiences on YouTube, rivaling many cable shows. With YouTube Red Originals, we want to help them tell bigger and bolder stories that delight you, their fans. YouTube Red is your opportunity to support the passion projects your favorite creators have only dreamed about until now."
