Our TextLess Live More PSAs are narrated by actor Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and Maze Runner and directed by Allen Sowelle.

Esposito, the father of four daughters, met Merritt Levitan when she was a child and graciously volunteered to narrate the TLLM PSAs.


Our TLLM videos were filmed on location in Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Portland, Oregon, Boston’s Faneuil Hall, Harvard University and Milton Academy, where Merritt was a student. The candid interviews are a mixture of Merritt’s friends and people off the street. The responses to each question were unrehearsed and filmed in one take.
