YouTube Premium has been in the game of streaming service for a couple of years now. With every year, it has been getting bigger and bolder with its ideas and ‘Impulse’ is a testimony of that. It is based on the novel of the same name by Steven Gould, adapted for YouTube by Jeffery Lieber, who also serves as an executive producer, alongside Gene Klein, David Bartis, Doug Liman and Lauren LeFranc. Lieber is best-known for being the co-creator of ‘Lost’. He also served as showrunner and executive producer for ‘NCIS: New Orleans’. In ‘Impulse’, we witness the story of a young girl who, in the middle of a sexual assault, discovers that she can teleport.
