This week in comedy: From Greg Daniels (creator of The Office and Parks and Recreation) comes a new series called Upload. The series, which debuts Friday on Amazon Prime, follows a world where, as death approaches, you can choose to upload your mind into a virtual afterlife. In the show, we follow a man who is trying to navigate this new world and still feel like himself in the process.
Speaking of Parks and Recreation, we also see the previously announced return of Parks and Recreation for a special quarantined episode on NBC. While we’ve seen a fair share of reunion shows happening throughout this thing we’re all going through, this is the first time we’ve seen an actual newly written episode of a show. So that’s definitely something to get excited about.
Plus, Mindy Kaling’s work returns to the small screen (this time as a writer/producer). Co-created with her collaborator from The Mindy Project Lang Fisher, Never Have I Ever is a coming-of-age story that is loosely based on Kaling’s high school days, though set in present day. It follows Devi as she navigates her way through sophomore year of high school, determined to make it a great one (and have sex along the way). Never Have I Ever hits Netflix today.
