Upload creator talks Season 2!
Amazon Prime’s Upload is up for season two. As the show’s creator, Greg Daniels said when speaking to Digital Spy. The creator of the ever so famous The Office is finally ready to pen down new theories and themes for upcoming shows. He recently created Netflix’s Space Force. And these new creations are up in the works by the funny man first time in six years, after he took a long break post The Office.
Upload is based on characters who upload themselves to digital heaven once they die. In fact, Daniels began writing Upload soon after The Office ended. But it took six years for the show credits to materialize and hit screens. Daniel commented about why it took so long and said:
“It’s been a long time coming. I was writing episodes in 2017, and then we shot a pilot in 2018. And then we shot the series in 2019. There were so many special effects, that it took another year to do all the visual effects. It’s been a long time coming, and it’s great fun.”
The creator compares the show to Bollywood
Daniels said that he’s made a show with several elements in it. It has comedy, thrill, romance all in a futuristic setting. And guess what he compares his show to? He compares it to fellow entertainment giant industry, Bollywood. He went on to explain how movies in Bollywood cramp in so much stuff in just one movie. And so, he’s done something similar. He’s created a show thinking that his own, unique show needs to have everything in it. Thus, he went into it thinking about all cinematic elements.
Daniels said that he initially pitched it as a two-season show to Amazon, to begin with. He said currently he is writing season two. And went on to tell us that:
“..it’s not meant to only be 10 episodes. But it’s also probably not meant to be 100 episodes. I mean, when I was doing it, the Amazon guys kept saying, ‘Think of it as a five-hour movie.’ So I tried to do that.”
