Deadline is exclusively reporting that Paulo Costanzo has signed up for a recurring role for the upcoming second season of Amazon comedy series Upload.
The series focuses on Nathan Brown, a young man living his best life in 2033, when he is involved in a self-driving car accident that leaves him with two options: either head into the great unknown of a normal death or be uploaded into the virtual afterlife at the highly sought after Lakeview, which he can’t afford but is placed there under his wealthy girlfriend’s plan. Nathan is introduced into the virtual afterlife by a customer service rep, with the company having them refer themselves as ‘Angels’ and offer those uploaded into Lakeview afterlife guidance. Nathan soon strikes a friendship with his Angel, Nora Antony, and when the two of them realise that some of Nathan’s memories of his real life are glitched, they start to question whether Nathan’s accident was not so accidental after all.
Paulo Costanzo (whose credits include Designated Survivor and The Good Fight) will be playing the role of Matteo, a young charismatic leader prone to bouts of self-importance.
Costanzo will join a cast that includes Robbie Amell, Andy Allo, Allegra Edwards, Owen Daniels, Kevin Bigley and Zainab Johnson.
