SHOWTIME RELEASES SEASON TWO TRAILER AND KEY ART FOR DOCU-SERIES THE TRADE
Directed By Oscar® Nominee Matthew Heineman, Series Delves Into Human Trafficking For Its Second Season Premiering At the Sundance Film Festival And On SHOWTIME On Friday, March 6
NEW YORK – January 24, 2020 – SHOWTIME has released the trailer and key art for the upcoming season of the IDA Award-winning series THE TRADE ahead of its premiere next week at the Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Emmy® and DGA Award winner and Oscar nominee Matthew Heineman, the four-part series follows Central Americans on an odyssey to the United States (including some heading back home after being deported), while also delving into the shadow industries that prey on them every step along the way. By shedding light on the smugglers and traffickers who take advantage of the migrants’ vulnerability and on law enforcement pursuing them at the border, THE TRADE brings audiences inside the rarely seen underbelly of the migrants’ world and humanizes their struggle to survive. THE TRADE premieres on Friday, March 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.
THE TRADE is executive produced by Heineman, Pagan Harleman and Joedan Okun.Join the conversation on social using #TheTrade.
