The series is set in a small country town in Australia, a year after a devastating flood that impacted everyone in the town. The premise of the show centres around a plant that has the power to restore youth. But this is merely the surface level concept, as the show delves into deeper issues of self-discovery, love, family and community.

The six-part mystery was released on 1 January 2019. The series stars Bryan Brown, Jacki Weaver, Phoebe Tonkin, Ryan Corr and more. A second season aired on April 9, 2020


The recent TV series exclusive to Amazon Prime has people talking around the office.

The series has been renewed for another season after the success of the first season that launched in May 2020. 

Upload is set in the year 2033 where humans are able to "upload" themselves to an afterlife of their own choosing through virtual reality.

The story follows the death of computer programmer, Nathan, who selects a wealthy town as his afterlife, but soon comes to regret his decision. It touches on futuristic themes in the tone of comedic satire.
