Upright is an Australian drama series screening on Foxtel's Showcase channel in Australia. Upright follows the story of two misfits, Lucky and Meg, who are thrown together by chance in the middle of the Australian desert and forge the unlikeliest of bonds in their quest to get a precious upright piano from one side of the country to the other.[1]

The eight part series is written by Chris Taylor and star Tim Minchin, alongside award-winning writer-actors Kate Mulvany and Leon Ford.

Upright started to air on Sky Atlantic on 28 November 2019 in the United Kingdom, and in Australia from 1 December 2019 on Foxtel.[2]
