In a technologically advanced future where hologram phones, 3D food printers and automated grocery stores are the norm, humans can choose to be 'uploaded' into a virtual afterlife when they find themselves near-death. The series follows a young app developer, Nathan Brown, who winds up in the hospital following a self-driving car accident, needing to quickly decide his fate. After a rushed deliberation with his shallow girlfriend Ingrid, he chooses to be uploaded to her family's luxurious virtual afterlife, the Horizen company's 'Lakeview'. Once uploaded in Lakeview, Nathan meets his customer service 'Angel' Nora Anthony, who at first is his charismatic concierge and guide, but quickly becomes his friend and confidante, helping him navigate this new digital extension of life.
Upload was renewed for Season 2
