Silver Mountain deals with Fair Trade Silver Mountain deals with Fair Trade (C21)
The distribution arm of Ireland’s Silver Mountain Productions has landed worldwide sales rights, excluding Benelux, for eight-part Belgian crime series Fair Trade.
Made by Belgian producer Marc Punt’s Independent Productions, the 8×60’ series was produced for Belgian network VTM and streaming platform Streamz. Fair Trade has already been renewed for a second series, due next year, and Silver Mountain Distribution is handling sales.
The series follows two narcotics cops who are disillusioned by years on the force and find themselves increasingly wrapped up in criminal dealings.
Punt’s credits include the ground-breaking 2005 sex trafficking drama Matrioshki, which was distributed via UK-based distributor High Point Films & Television. High Point’s former MD Carey Fitzgerald left the company in 2016 to launch Cork-based Silver Mountain the following year.
