Amazon Studios announced a new half-hour sci fi romantic satire series, “Upload.”

The series comes from Greg Daniels, creator of series including “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation,” and “King of the Hill.” Daniels will run the series with Howard Klein, his longtime producing partner.

“Upload” stars Andy Allo and Robbie Amell. Allo starred in “Pitch Perfect 3” and “The Hero.” Amell starred in the newer seasons of “The X-Files,” as well as “A Series of Unfortunate Events” and the movie “When We First Met.”

The official series synopsis:

‘Upload’ is a sci-fi sitcom that takes place in the near future, where people who are near death can be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife of their choice. In 2033, secretly romantic Brooklyn-born Nora works customer service for a luxurious virtual reality environment.  When handsome L.A. party boy Nathan’s self-driving car crashes, his high-maintenance girlfriend uploads him permanently into Nora’s VR world.

The new series will feature ten episodes and will premiere on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.

Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television for Amazon Studios, said:

“I’m thrilled to be once again working with Greg and Howard on this new series. They’ve made some of the best comedies of the last three decades and I know our Prime Video customers are in for a treat when ‘Upload’ premieres.”

Greg Daniels also said:

“Amazon is the perfect place to make ‘Upload,’ because of their strong creative team, and because it’s a company that could actually one day host a digital afterlife. If I get in good with them, I’m hoping for a big discount on my first thousand years.”

Amazon has not yet announced the release date for the series, but it is expected in 2019.
