Upload: trailer

A look at Greg Daniels' sci fi series with Robbie Amell, coming to Amazon Prime.

New sci-fi series Upload from Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) screens on Amazon Prime in early May.

The 10 part series stars Robbie Amell, Andy Allo,Kevin Bigley, Allegra Edwards, and Zainab Johnson.

Amell plays Nathan who has his consciousness uploaded into a virtual afterlife and has to deal with all the trials and tribulations of living in a version of Heaven, if Heaven was run by large corporations.

From Emmy-Award winning writer Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) comes Upload, a new sci-fi comedy series set in a technologically advanced future where hologram phones, 3D food printers and automated grocery stores are the norm. Most uniquely, humans can choose to be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife when they find themselves near-death.

The series follows a young app developer, Nathan Brown (Robbie Amell), who winds up in the hospital following a self-driving car accident, needing to quickly decide his fate. After a rushed deliberation with his shallow girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards), he chooses to be uploaded to her family’s luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company’s “Lakeview.” Once uploaded in Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service “Angel” Nora Anthony (Andy Allo), who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life.

Friday May 1 on Amazon Prime.

  1. The nice trailer makes me think of the movie ‘Little’.
    My first impression is that the viewer may experience story overload watching this series.
    Upload looks easily adaptable to any number of genres, which makes it surprising the show as a series wasn’t taken up by CBS or CW.
