The series, created by Gregg Araki, was described as a surreal, 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 in Los Angeles. Between sexual and romantic dating app adventures, Ulysses’ foreboding premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy going on, or is he just smoking too much weed? Araki co-wrote each episode with Karley Sciortino, creator and host of “Slutever” on Viceland. Araki also executive produced along with Steven Soderbergh and Gregory Jacobs.

Now Apocalypse 2019 Development:-
Gregg Araki was inspired to do television by the mystery series Twin Peaks, which he called “so ground-breaking and artistic and unusual and just its totally own thing”. He directed episodes of several television series, but was hesitant to run his own show until he thought about the story potential of life in Los Angeles. Araki presented the idea to writer Karley Sciortino, who started working with him on the script. Gregory Jacobs, who had worked with Araki on Red Oaks, joined the project and brought in Steven Soderbergh. The production designer, costume designer, and director of photography have previously worked on other projects with Araki.
