Now Apocalypse is an upcoming comedy set to premiere on Starz. Gregg Araki will co-write the series with Vogue.com sex columnist Karley Sciortino and direct all ten half-hour episodes. He’ll also executive produce along with Steven Soderbergh and Gregory Jacobs.
Araki is heavily associated with New Queer Cinema. Like several of his past projects (Kaboom, The Doom Generation), his latest will also feature LGBTQ characters.
According to Deadline, Now Apocalypse is a “coming-of-age comedy that follows Ulysses (Avan Jogia) and his friends Carly (Kelli Berglund), Ford (Beau Mirchoff) and Severine (Roxane Mesquida), who are on various quests pursing love, sex and fame while navigating the strange and oftentimes bewildering city of Los Angeles.”
Tyler Posey is also set to appear. He’ll play “an incredibly charismatic and mysterious guy Ulysses matches with on a dating app. During their highly anticipated first date, they can hardly contain themselves.” Can’t wait to see what they can’t contain 😉
