The Emmy winning creator of The Office and Parks and Recreations, Greg Daniels, is working on a new show with Amazon Prime.
Upload, a sci-fi afterlife series, will be 10-episodes starring Robbie Amell (The Flash, The Tomorrow People) as Nathan, an app developer who has to make a life or death decision after a horrific accident. Nathan must choose between surgery or dying with digital immortality. After choosing the latter, his consciousness is “uploaded” to a virtual afterlife.
The show will follow Nathan’s journey in the glamorous afterlife community of Lakewood, where his girlfriend (Allegra Edwards) and her family have a house. In this fantasy world, Nathan has access to anything he ever wanted as long as he can pay for it via in-app purchases. But Nora (Andy Allo) has a crush on Nathan, and she might get in the way of his happily ever after.
Upload is set to be released on Amazon Prime on May 1st.
