Living his best life in post-apocalyptic LA, a slacker strives to find the girl of his dreams while outwitting mindless ghouls and cliquish gangs.

High school isn't the end of the world... until it is.

In this post-apocalyptic, genre-bending series, the city of Glendale, California is populated by marauding gangs of jocks, gamers, the 4-H Club and other fearsome tribes who are kicking ass as they fight to survive in the wake of a nuclear blast (on the night of Homecoming... ugh).

Following an eclectic group of survivors as they navigate this strange and treacherous world, Daybreak is part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale.

From the outside, their houses look normal. But inside a family is struggling to keep ahead of the insignificant things that have taken over their lives.

Items range from Christmas ornaments to tin foil to newspaper and bags of new clothing with tags still attached.

Each person has latched on to something different and can't seem to let go.

Depending upon the situation the show enlists the help of a therapist, a professional organiser, or a cleaning crew who guide the collectors through the clean-up process and give them the tools they need to keep their behaviour in check.

The show gives each hoarder a clean start and then follows up weeks later to find out if they have been able to keep their compulsive collecting at bay.

In the Season 10 premiere, "Patricia": Since retiring as an ER nurse, Patricia makes extra money selling things that other people have discarded.

Now she's getting fined thousands of dollars a week because her three Florida homes are overflowing with her inventory.
