Everything You Need To Know About Hulu’s New Series ‘Up Here’

Up Here

Up Here, a new musical romantic comedy series, debuts on Hulu today, March 24, and here’s everything you need to know about this ambitious new show.

The Story

Up Here follows the extraordinary story of one ordinary couple, Lindsay (Mae Whitman) and Miguel (Carlos Valdes), during the waning days of 1999 in New York City.

Set in an era before smartphones, the series chronicles Lindsay and Miguel’s romantic saga, from the time they meet in a bar by chance.

But as they fall in love, they discover that the single greatest obstacle to finding happiness together might just be themselves because of the inner voices in their heads feeding them memories, obsessions, fears, and fantasies.

Up Here also stars Katie Finneran, John Hodgman, Andréa Burns, Sophia Hammons, and Emilia Suárez.
