“Larry Gus” is a comedy series, based on a real person. Fiction-made reality. Or vice versa. A frantic and intimate inventory of the creative woes and surreal existential angst defining the internationally acclaimed DFA Records producer, songwriter and performer Larry Gus. A tragicomic commentary on recurring failures as a sign of personal growth and development.

In nine 15min. episodes, we follow Larry Gus as his life starts to crumble and his deeply existential discomfort is back at full swing. A neverending quest to complete his album while trying to balance out fatherhood responsibility, creative procrastination and the fear of getting dropped by the esteemed label releasing his music. A life full of apologies, neurotic breakdowns and fleeting moments of beauty, infected with bursts of comedy, as decaying Greek reality shows its surreal face,day after day, farce after farce.
