Silver Mountain Distribution, the sales and marketing arm of Carey Fitzgerald’s Irish production Company Silver Mountain Productions, is launching season two of TV series Fair Trade in the global markets.

Fair Trade season one is the most streamed series in the Benelux, and season two became the most watched series of the week on Streamz three days after going on air last month. The success of season one and the record ratings for season two prompted Amazon Freevee in Germany to acquire the latest season of Fair Trade from Silver Mountain Distribution.

Silver Mountain's head of Creative Affairs Julie Delaney commented: "Global buyers have been waiting with baited breath to screen Season 2 and will not be disappointed. With Germany being the first acquisition, I am looking forward to selling the series to the rest of the world."

Fair Trade: The Road Back is set three years after the first season. It follows queer cop Robin De Rover (Ella June Henrard) in her mission to find her former boss Wilson’s (Kevin Janssens) killer after he was assassinated. De Rover has to juggle the grief of his death with the risks of her job affecting the relationship with her partner Julie (Daphne Wellens). She seeks the help of drug lord ‘Padre’ Paternoster (Peter Van Den Begin) as more hurdles present themselves in the form of underhand police corruption, violent gangsters and armed robberies. The series also stars Polina Vasylina, Peter Thyssen, Sven de Ridder and Axel Daeseleire.

Creative Director Dominique Murphy - de Neef added: “Revolutionary producer, writer and director Marc Punt has really pulled it out of the bag again with this captivating second series filled with tension, comedy and drama all with an LGBT+ female protagonist, which TV and streamers need to show more of!”

Production commenced just as the war broke out in Ukraine providing a serious challenge for Ukrainian actresses Ksneniya Mishina, who plays drug Lord Padre's girlfriend and the Madam, and Kateryna Olos. “We are so thankful to Marc Punt, it is thanks to him that we are here. Just before filming, the Russian invasion began. He did everything he could to get us to Belgium, including arranging a place for us to stay,” said Ksneniya and Kateryna during the filming for season two.

Silver Mountain Distribution is the global sales division of Silver Mountain Productions. Founded in 2017 by Carey Fitzgerald, Silver Mountain Productions is an Irish Production Company specialising in films, drama and factual content for the international market.
