Starring Mae Whitman and Carlos Valdes, with Katie Finneran, John Hodgman, Andréa Burns, Sophia Hammons, Rehanshi Mirza, and Emilia Suárez, the series follows a couple who meet in New York City during the final days of 1999. Lindsay (Whitman) and Miguel (Valdes) fall in love and discover their most significant obstacle to finding happiness together might just be themselves. There’s also the treacherous world of memories, obsessions, fears, and fantasies that live inside their heads.
The Hulu series, ordered in February 2022, was written by Steven Levenson (tick, tick…BOOM!, Dear Evan Hansen) and Danielle Sanchez-Witzel (The Carmichael Show). Songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Frozen, WandaVision) wrote original songs. Thomas Kail (Hamilton) directed and executive produced the series alongside Levenson, Sanchez-Witzel, Anderson-Lopez, Lopez, and Jennifer Todd.
The first season of Up Here wrapped with the couple saying “I love you” to each other on New Year’s Eve.
