What Is The Plot of Up Here?
We have already mentioned that Up Here is going to be a musical romantic comedy series which immediately means a whole lot of fun for everyone evolved, however, the main premise of this series is going to revolve around the different voices in our heads. Sometimes these voices can be kind, and sometimes they can simply be awful, telling us we aren’t capable of achieving our goals, and Up Here is going to highlight a love story of two people who are often struggling with these voices. Before we dive into any more plot details, let’s take a look at the official synopsis provided by Hulu:
“A musical romantic comedy set in New York City in the waning days of 1999, following the extraordinary story of one ordinary couple, as they fall in love – and discover that the single greatest obstacle to finding happiness together might just be themselves – and the treacherous world of memories, obsessions, fears, and fantasies that lives inside their heads.”
The love story that is mentioned in this synopsis is the story of Lindsay and Miguel, two ordinary people living with some extremely loud and opinionated voices in their heads. Lindsay has moved to New York City with the dream to become a writer, and in the process, she falls in love with Miguel.
While things between them should be simple, they are far from that. Now, Lindsay and Miguel need to navigate their way through this love story while trying to comply and negotiate with the voices in their head. Will they have a happy ending? We are definitely rooting for that since Up Here is a romantic comedy, but we will have to see how the story progresses.
The concept of Up Here might not seem too unique at first glance, but there’s something special about this series that will separate it from others. The voices in Lindsay and Miguel’s heads that we have been talking about won’t just be voices.
Well, to make it a little simple, they are in their head but you can see them on screen as well, and so can our main characters. It looks fun and experimental, and we’re here for it! Let’s move on to the cast of Up Here, and see which familiar faces might appear in this Hulu series.
The Cast of Up Here
Up Here is going to have a lot of characters and hopefully, it won’t be too hard to keep with them. Plus, since it’s a musical, we need more than just one or two people in most of the songs. Albeit, the main focus will remain on Lindsay and Miguel who will be played by Mae Whitman and Carlos Valdes.
You might recognize Whitman from her role in the popular teen movie, The DUFF, or her performance in the series Good Girls. She is an underrated actress, and Up Here is bound to give her to exposure and recognition that she deserves.
As for Valdes, he is most popularly known for his role as Cisco Ramon in The Flash series, so if you are a superhero fan, you probably already know who he is.
There will be several other actors and actresses joining Whitman and Valdes in Up Here, and some of them include John Hodgman, Scott Porter, Sophia Hammons, Katie Finneran, Andrea Burns, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Julia McDermott amongst others.
When and Where Can You Watch Up Here?
It won’t be long before you can finally stream Up Here, because March has begun and so has the lineup for this month, and streaming services have a lot in store for their viewers.
Up Here is officially slated to premiere on the 24th of March. The first two episodes of Up Here will be available to watch on the 24th, followed by weekly episodes. If you haven’t subscribed to Hulu yet, now is the perfect time to do so.
Is There a Trailer for Up Here?
We will have to admit, the first thing about Up Here that caught our attention was the official trailer, which has over two million views already, and the viewers seem really excited about the upcoming musical romantic comedy series.
The trailer gives us a glimpse into everything that we can expect from this series. Whether it is our two main characters, Lindsay and Miguel, or the voices inside their head. The trailer for Up Here looks a little chaotic, and that bears some resemblance to how the human mind works.
So, if that is what they were aiming for, then it has completely worked. Of course, since this is a musical series, the trailer has a great tempo and overall, just a whole lot to look forward to.
If you couldn’t tell, we are really excited about Up Here, and we would love to know in the comments section whether or not you are excited about this series too!
