“35 years after the shocking murder of three teens, the infamous ‘Sweet Sixteen Killer’ returns on Halloween night to claim a fourth victim. 17-year-old Jamie (Kiernan Shipka) comes face to face with the masked maniac after ignoring her overprotective mother’s (Julie Bowen) warning. While fleeing for life, Jamie accidentally time travels back to 1987, the year of the original killings. Forced to navigate the unfamiliar culture of the 1980s, Jamie teams up with her teenage mother (Olivia Holt) to take down the killer once and for all before she’s stuck in the past forever.”
Upload is a sci-fi comedy series from Emmy-winning writer Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation, King of the Hill) that’s set in a technologically advanced future where holographic phones, self-driving vehicles, AI assistance, and 3D food printers are the norm.
