A big part of last fall's YouTube Red launch was the promise of original content for those subscribers shelling out $10 every month. We still have no idea if YouTube's first slate of originals will be any good, but at least we know when we can find out. On February 10th, three films and one series will make their debut; all of the content will come from YouTube creators who've already racked up millions of subscribers and views.

Perhaps most notable is PewDiePie, whose "reality-adventure" series Scare PewDiePie will surely continue his mastery of YouTube. The three movies will come from Astronauts Wanted and Lilly Singh, AwesomenessTV and Rooster Teeth and run the gamut from the action / buddy / alien comedy Lazer Team to the presumably inspiring documentary A Trip To Unicorn Island, which covers Singh's 30-city world tour.

Three of these titles were announced back in November, while the fourth (Dance Camp, from AwesomenessTV) was added to the total of 10 projects that YouTube had already announced. That means there are still seven more programs and movies with release dates coming, including a project from CollegeHumor. If you want to keep up with the original content from YouTube Red that's coming soon, there's naturally a YouTube channel you should subscribe to -- it looks like it'll feature behind-the-scenes content for all original programming as well as the full shows and films.
