Airdate: Now Apocalypse
Surreal comedy from Gregg Araki, Steven Soderbergh & Gregory Jacobs coming to Stan.
Language, nudity, adult themes
Surreal US comedy series Now Apocalypse from indie filmmaker Gregg Araki (Kaboom, Mysterious Skin), Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, The Laundromat) and Gregory Jacobs (The Laundromat, Magic Mike XXL) is coming to Stan.
It will premiere on Sunday, March 10, with new episodes weekly, “timed to the U.S. broadcast.”
Now Apocalypse stars Avan Jogia (Tut, Twisted) as Ulysses, who is struggling to figure out his life in the surreal and bewildering city of Los Angeles. Kelli Berglund (Lab Rats, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors) stars as Carly, Beau Mirchoff (Awkward, The Fosters) as Ford, and Roxane Mesquida (Kaboom, Gossip Girl) as Severine, all of whom are on quests pursuing love, sex and fame. Between sexual and romantic dating-app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding, premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on — or if he is just smoking too much weed.
Now Apocalypse will make its world premiere as an Official Selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
Araki directed all 10 episodes and co-wrote the series with author and Vogue.com sex columnist Karley Sciortino, who is also the creator and host of Slutever on Viceland. Sciortino also serves as consulting producer.
Sunday March 10 on Stan.
