Plot Synopsis

Created and written by series star Chris Lilley, LUANTICS is a mockumentary series that follows the peculiar lives of six eccentric -- and sometimes obscene -- misfits who march to their own beat. Through documentary interviews, self recorded and fly on the wall footage the six intriguing subjects are observed over a period of months. Their stories unfold with hilarious results. As eccentric and odd as they all are, they are scarily recognizable types and they teach us that its ok to just be you. These six characters include:

Becky, a 7-foot-3 tall twin in her first year of university at an American college with her twin sister and dealing with social issues and life with massive legs.

Jana, a South African lesbian pet psychic to the stars, who struggles with an unrequited love for her personal assistant.

Quentin, an incompetent but cocky real-estate agent about to inherit a family business who dreams of being a world renowned DJ and street artist.

Gavin, an obnoxious child heir destined to become the future Earl of an English country estate, who struggles with the pressures of his future and trying to be a kid.

Joyce, an eccentric elderly ex porn star and hoarder who is now a recluse who obsessively collects things while facing an impending eviction.

fashion wannabe Keith, a retail veteran embarking on a new business venture who struggles with objective sexuality issues and his deep love for a cash register.

At the beginning of the series, Quentin starts his transition to CEO. Jana explains more about her psychic methods. Gavin learns Gayhurst history. Joyce describes her "collection." Then, Jana plans a pet art show. Keith has big ideas for the new store. Becky struggles to fit in at college. Quentin goes all out for his 30th birthday. On Friday, April 19, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released all 10 episodes of LUNATICS.
