Amazon Releases Trailer & May Premiere Date For Greg Daniels Sci-Fi Comedy Series ‘Upload’ Starring Robbie Amell
Amazon has released a trailer and a May premiere date for a brand new sci-fi comedy ‘Upload‘ from Greg Daniels, the Emmy-Award winning writer behind ‘The Office US’ and ‘Parks and Recreation’ starring Arrowverse’s Robbie Amell.
Upload is 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 – ‘The Flash’, ‘Code 8’), 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 – ‘Briarpatch’, ‘The Social Ones’), 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 – ‘Chicago Fire’), 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.
‘Upload’ is an Amazon Original, ten-episode sci-fi comedy series. Alongside Amell, Edwards and Allo, the series also stars Kevin Bigley (‘Here and Now’, ‘BoJack Horseman’) and Zainab Johnson (‘American Koko’). Greg Daniels created the series and also serves as executive producer along with Howard Klein.
‘Upload‘ Season 1 premieres Friday, 1st May 2020 on Amazon Prime UK and worldwide.
