Watch Force Grey: The Lost Episode Streamed Live on December 5th

This summer, actors and comedians from The Sarah Silverman Program and The Mindy Project congregated at Meltdown Comics in L.A. to play a session of Dungeons & Dragons led by Matthew Mercer (Critical RoleOverwatch). The seven episodes produced and presented by Nerdist earned more than 1.1 million views on YouTube. You can catch up by binge watching the series on the Nerdist YouTube channel here, but the story’s conclusion was left as a cliffhanger.

Fans local to the area can sign up to watch the show live here – https://force-grey-thelostepisode.eventbrite.com – but the rest of the world can watch it streamed online at www.twitch.tv/wotc_dnd and other channels such as Facebook Live. More details to come on that front!

Brian Posehn (The Sarah Silverman Program), Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project, Pitch Perfect) and Shelby Fero (Emmy Award-winning writer on Robot Chicken), will return to reprise their roles from Force Grey: Giant Hunters, but there will be some new faces joining the party. Emily V. Gordon, co-writer of the upcoming film The Big Sick and producer of three seasons of The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail on Comedy Central, will take up arms against the giants. We’re also keeping a chair or two open for any surprise friends of the cast to drop in, put on a wizard’s hat, and cast magic missile!

See you there!”
