If you like your musicals earnest and your romantic comedies cheesy, chances are you'll enjoy Up Here.
Hulu's latest original series features a bevy of musical hard-hitters behind the wheel, including Hamilton director Thomas Kail,
tick, tick...BOOM! screenwriter Steven Levenson, and Frozen and WandaVision songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez
This dream team for theater kids guides viewers through a love story between Lindsay (Mae Whitman) and Miguel (Carlos Valdes), two lost souls whose insecurities manifest themselves as nagging inner voices.
There is singing, there is dancing, and there are many laughs along the way.
At first glance, Lindsay and Miguel may seem like your average rom-com leads: She's an aspiring writer freshly arrived in New York, and he's an investment banker trying to get ahead
But what sets them apart are their inner voices, which Up Here externalizes as a Greek chorus of disapproving figures from Lindsay and Miguel's lives
For Lindsay, these are her parents (Katie Finneran and John Hodgman) and her best friend from middle school (Sophia Hammons)
