Amazon this week (April 26-May 2) plans to add 47 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including one original.
The new titles will include Upload (pictured above), an Amazon original sci-fi comedy from Greg Daniels (The Office) about a society where you can upload yourself into an imaginary (maybe) heaven. The 10-episode first season stars Robbie Amell as Nathan who struggles coping with the so-called perfect after life while Andy Allo plays Nora, his heavenly guide.
Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the show a score of 83 out of a possible 100 based on six reviews.
“Despite being a story set in the afterlife tackling themes of capitalism and loss of privacy, Upload is at heart deeply human and deeply funny,” writes Adam Chitwood of Collider.
