Now Apocalypse’: Gregg Araki and Karley Sciortino on Creating Sexually Adventurous Characters
From filmmaker Gregg Araki and sex columnist Karley Sciortino, as well as executive producers Steven Soderbergh and Greg Jacobs, the 10-episode, half-hour Starz comedy series Now Apocalypse is a surreal and wild coming-of-age story that follows Ulysses (Avan Jogia) and his friends – Ford (Beau Mirchoff), Carly (Kelli Berglund) and Severine (Roxane Mesquida) – as they explore identity, sexuality, and love in the often strange city of Los Angeles.
As his premonitory dreams become more troubling and seemingly apocalyptic, Ulysses begins to wonder if something dark and dangerous is going on, or if the weed he’s been smoking is just making him hallucinate.
While at the Starz portion of the TCA Press Tour, Collider got the opportunity to sit down with executive producer/co-writer/director Gregg Araki and co-writer/consulting producer Karley Sciortino to talk about how creative the development process for Now Apocalypse was, making what is Araki’s all-time dream TV show, creating characters that don’t exist on television, incorporating the supernatural/sci-fi element into the story, the process of casting, assembling a cast that’s willing to be vulnerable, and how they feel like they could keep this story going indefinitely.
Karley, were you also surprised at how quickly and easily this seems to have all happened?
KARLEY SCIORTINO: Yeah. I’d never really worked in scripted television before, and I heard that networks give you notes, but we didn’t really have that experience, weirdly. It really felt like you could let your imagination run wild. What I’m really proud of about the show is that I feel like we’ve created characters who I don’t feel like exist in television and who I wish I could have seen on TV, when I was younger.
A handful of years ago, I don’t think there could have been a show on television that’s about a bi-racial, sexually fluid man. You very rarely see bi-sexual men on television, at all, and if you do, often bi-sexual characters are portrayed as evil murderers because they’re so tortured by their sexuality that they’re self-destructive. These characters are really sexually adventurous and sexually resilient. They’re adventure seeking, but they’re not victims. This show is really celebratory of sex. It’s not like these characters have the perfect sex lives and they have it all figured out. They absolutely don’t.
ARAKI: But part of the fun is watching them figure it out, or try to figure it out.
SCIORTINO: I feel like, if I saw characters like this, who were so sexually adventurous, resilient and curious on television, when I was younger, especially the women, it would have been amazing. I think that’s why people still, to this day, look at Samantha from Sex and the City as a slutty icon ‘cause we’ve never had another one, which is sad.
ARAKI: That was the ‘90s, and it’s a little bit of a step backward from that. That show was so groundbreaking, in terms of women, sexuality, their friendship, and all of that. We want to take the next step forward with that. I feel like, especially now, given the horrible political situation that we’re in, it’s a really important time for the show. I’m so proud of the show, and I’m so proud to put it out there because I do think the world really needs a show like this now.
When Karley and I first wrote the spec script, it was the twilight of the Obama years. And then, 2016 happened and it was like, “Oh, the world’s a different place now.” I actually did a pass (of the script) that was the Trump pass. There’s always been that dark David Lynch-ian element in the show, but that dark cloud of foreboding, ominous doom became a little bit darker after 2016. But the show, on a whole, is still very pop, fun show.
What was this show like to cast? How did you pitch what this would be to actors?
ARAKI: We were in a really fortunate position because we had all 10 scripts written. With a normal show, you write and rewrite while you’re shooting, and it’s a whole process. For us, we literally shot it like a giant movie. By the time we were casting, all of the scripts were done. All four of the leads, before they even signed on, could read the whole season and know exactly what their part would be and exactly what was required.
They had a very clear picture of what they were signing up for. That was what was so awesome about it. The actors read it all, and they either loved it, or it freaked them out and they ran away.
SCIORTINO: Which definitely happened.
ARAKI: What was left were the cool people, and we just got the most fantastic cast, ever. They were just really all in.
SCIORTINO: They’re such vulnerable roles, and these actors really humanize these characters. I’ve watched all 10 episodes, and I cried at various points, throughout the season, even though I knew what was going to happen. We’re so lucky ‘cause all of the actors read everything in advance and the scripts really attracted a certain type of person. We have the coolest, most progressive, sex-positive cast, and I don’t think you could have made this show, any other way.
