Gregg Araki is a well known name in both movie and TV space. He has directed a few episodes of Riverdale, American Crime and 13 Reasons Why. He is also known for being behind several cult-hit movies like The Doom Generation — the 1995 French-American black comedy — and White Bird in a Blizzard. The main theme of his films and shows centers around the youth and the modern life — which is fueled by the need to be accepted, understood and admired. Often, this pushes them to the boundaries of disaster. The theme of Now Apocalypse follows along similar lines. More on that later.
