About

What is LFOD?

Live Free or Die! is a serial comedy/drama focused on urban expatriate Edward Dewey and his experiences at “Misty Mountain”: a present-day New Hampshire commune.

The creators' vision for LFOD! is threefold: (a) to develop characters and storylines that celebrate humanity's archetypal myths and narrative forms; (b) to engage the audience in the storytelling process in innovative ways; and (c) to explore our concept of "open-source narrative."
