Upload Trailer: Amazon’s Upcoming Sci-Fi Comedy Series from Greg Daniels


After spending a full decade producing two huge comedy hits for NBC with The Office and Parks and Recreation, Greg Daniels is now moving into the streaming world by developing a couple of original shows for Netflix and Amazon. The Netflix series Space Force will find him reteaming with Steve Carell but while that is still in pre-production, the new Amazon series Upload arrives in just over a month. The show takes place in the near future where people who are close to death are given the option of being uploaded into a virtual reality environment to live our their digital afterlife indefinitely. It feels like a lighthearted take on a Black Mirror episode and also feels a bit reminiscent of other high concept comedies like the Alexander Payne film Downsizing and the NBC series The Good Place. Upload stars Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, Kevin Bigley, Owen Daniels, Allegra Edwards and Zainab Johnson it hits Amazon on May 1st. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.
