Amazon has given the official nod to Upload, a new comedy from The Office’s Greg Daniels.
The sci-fi romantic satire is created by the Emmy winning man behind Parks and Recreation and King of the Hill and produced by longtime producing partner Howard Klein.
The project began as a pilot at Amazon Studios, even though Amazon has now moved away from its pilot-based approach to original series, which released them publicly for viewers to offer feedback. Indeed, Amazon passed on all of the pilots in its latest batch last year, including Sea Oak, starring Glenn Close as a zombie, Love You More, from Patti Cake$’ Bridget Everett and Sex and the City‘s Michael Patrick King, and Diarra Kilpatrick’s The Climb.
Upload is just one of two older pilots that were awaiting a decision last year, alongside Making Friends, from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. This weekend, though, Amazon announced at its TCA press tour event that Upload has been given the green light. The series will star Andy Allo (Pitch Perfect 3) and Robbie Amell (The X-Files), with an order issued for 10 episodes.
