If you were given the choice between death or living out the rest of your days in a virtual afterlife, which would you choose? This is the premise of Upload, the latest TV series from the creator of The Office and Parks and Recreation, Greg Daniels.
Upload is set in the year 2033 where people who are near death can be "uploaded" into virtual reality hotels run by six of the world's biggest tech firms. The show stars Robbie Amell who plays a young app developer named Nathan who ends up in the hospital after a self-driving car accident. At the hospital, his shallow girlfriend Ingrid (played by Allegra Edwards) convinces him to be uploaded to her family's luxurious virtual afterlife at the Horizen company's "Lakeview".
After being uploaded to Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service "Angel" Nora Anthony (played by Andy Allow) who serves as his concierge and guide to the virtual afterlife. However, the two quickly become friends and Nora, who lives in the real world, begins to develop feelings for Nathan.
Based on Upload's trailer, it looks like Greg Daniels' latest TV series will bring plenty of laughs as Nathan is still able to interact with Ingrid and his other friends who are still alive while he's trapped in a virtual luxury hotel. Keep reading and we'll show you exactly how to live stream Upload online from anywhere in the world.
