Stan announced today that the new 10-episode STARZ Original series NOW APOCALYPSE will premiere on Sunday, March 10, with new episodes weekly, timed to the U.S. broadcast. This sexy, vibrant and fast-moving comedy series is created and executive-produced by veteran indie filmmaker Gregg Araki (Kaboom, Mysterious Skin), Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, The Laundromat) and Gregory Jacobs (The Laundromat, Magic Mike XXL) also serve as executive producers.
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.
NOW APOCALYPSE comes exclusively to Stan as part of its long-term partnership with Starz, a Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) company. Other STARZ Original series exclusively on Stan include “Power”, “Vida” and “Sweetbitter”, all currently streaming on Stan.
NOW APOCALYPSE will premiere exclusively on Stan on March 10 with new episodes weekly, same day as the U.S.
