When you're trying to strike up a new relationship, do you find yourself battling your inner voices. That's a big issue for Mae Whitman and The Flash's Carlos Valdes in the new rom-com musical series Up Here headed to Disney+ next month. Check out the trailer…
Set in the "the waning days of 1999," the film follows idealistic writer Lindsay (Whitman) who decides that she should really be living in New York to follow her career ambitions.
There, she meets, charming, wealthy Miguel, played by Valdes. They click, but their path towards love is littered with obstacles, not the least of which are the voices in their heads that just won't shut up about what a bad idea this new potential relationship could be.
The show features some heavy hitters from the world of musicals – Hamilton director Thomas Kail is behind the camera, with a script from tick, tick… BOOM!'s Steven Levenson alongside Danielle Sanchez-Witzel. And the songs? Those were crafted by Frozen Oscar-winning duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who co-created the 2015 stage musical from which the show takes its inspiration.
With Katie Finneran, Andréa Burns, Sophia Hammons, Emilia Suárez, Scott Porter and John Hodgman also in the cast, Up Here will launch on Hulu in the States on 24 March, which should mean that it'll arrive on Disney+ here in the UK around the same time.
