Dead or Alive - Stranded in the Alaskan Wilderness


- Episode Logline -

When his hunting partner goes missing, an average man is left stranded in the Alaskan wilderness with only four granola bars, a thin rain jacket, and his wits to help him survive. 

The pilot episode of Dead or Alive tells the story of an average man faced with extraordinary circumstances.  While on an extended, back country bear hunt, the protagonist's hunting partner goes missing, leaving our hero stranded in the Alaskan wilderness with little food, no shelter, and slim hope.  Over the course of a week, he is forced to forage for food and water, seek what little shelter from the elements he is able, and square off against hostile predators that inhabit the region.  His greatest challenge of all, however, is himself.  To survive, you have to want to survive.  In "Stranded in Alaska," our hero must struggle to discover his own reasons for putting one foot in front of the other, and find the will to keep going despite the odds.

What does it feel like to be stranded in the Alaskan Wilderness? DEAD OR ALIVE takes viewers beyond recreations and thrusts them into true stories retold in the first-person point of view.


- Series Synopsis -

What does it feel like to be stranded in the Alaskan wilderness?  Or to be thrown from a moving plane in a lightening storm?  What does it feel like to survive the unsurvivable?  With its use of immersive first person storytelling, Dead or Alive answers these questions by not just telling audiences what it was like to survive extraordinary experiences, but by allowing them to actually live through those experiences themselves.  By using true stories as a starting point, POV gives audiences the next best thing to actually being there, placing them not just next to the action but in it.
