Brazilian crime drama Joint Venture will be available at SBS on Demand in July.
All ten episodes available to stream, in Portuguese with English subtitles.
Joint Venture is a cheeky yet hard hitting fictional series set in a modern-day Sao Paulo, where Marijuana has just been legalised. The story follows the life of 29-year-old Biriba (Luis Navarro), a young former dealer who faces a dilemma; become a legal retailer in a market that has quickly become saturated and controlled by his privileged class former clients, or continue a more lucrative life as an illegal dealer selling harder and more dangerous drugs.
After meeting up with a former client, Biriba decides to go down the legal path, but changing from one world to another is much more difficult than he imagined. In this new world, Biriba finds he has to follow new rules and ethics, with which he is unfamiliar. To make matters worse, his ceasing to be a trafficker does not go down well with certain figures from his past, who want to put him out of business.
