“I’m Ulysses. Everyone in my life right now is insane.” Judging from the first trailer for the Starz coming-of-age comedy Now Apocalypse, that seems about right. Have a look at it above, and judge for yourself.
Avan Jogia stars as a young man struggling to figure out his life in the surreal and bewildering city of Los Angeles. And having these increasingly troubling sleeptime premonitions. Is there some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on, or might that just be da kine kicking in? Speaking of which, dig to all those far-out colors, man.
Kelli Berglund, Beau Mirchoff and Roxane Mesquida also star as Ulysses’ respective millennial friends Carly, Ford and Severine — all of whom are on various quests pursuing love, sex and fame.
Gregg Araki created, directs and co-writes Now Apocalypse, which he also executive produces alongside Steven Soderbergh and Gregory Jacobs. Vogue.com sex columnist and Slutever creator-host Karley Sciortino is the other co-writer and serves as consulting producer. It will screen at the Sundance Film Festival this month ahead of its March 10 premiere on Starz. Check out the trailer above and the new key art below for the series that explores identity, sexuality and artistry. Shrooms optional.
