New Sci-Fi Series From the Creator of “The Office” Gets Trailer

Robbie Amell and Andy Allo in "Upload"

Emmy winner Greg Daniels, the mind behind The Office and Parks and Recreation, is returning to television with a sci-fi afterlife comedy for Amazon Prime.

Robbie Amell (The Flash) stars as Nathan, an app developer who dies after a terrible accident and has to choose between surgery or dying with digital immortality. He chooses the latter and his consciousness is “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife.

The 10-episode series will follow Nathan’s journey in the glamorous afterlife community of “Lakeside” where his girlfriend Ingrid (Allegra Edwards) and her family-bought property, while another woman, Nora (Andy Allo), takes a liking to him. In this fantasy world, Nathan will have everything he ever wanted including a talking dog, as long as he can pay for it via in-app purchases.

Upload will be released on Amazon Prime on May 1.
