Gregg Araki and Steven Soderbergh are teaming up on an unlikely new comedy series for Starz.

Now Apocalypse is slated for 10 half-hour episodes and is a surreal coming-of-age story following four friends as they navigate fame, sexuality, and identity in Los Angeles.

Slutever creator and host Karley Sciortino co-writes the series alongside Araki (Kaboom), who also directs, while Soderbergh serves as executive producer.

“We will not be responsible for people’s heads splitting in half when they see it,” says Soderbergh (The Knick). We look forward to cleaning splattered brain matter off of our living room floors.
