Last reported in 2013, Working Dog‘s Ed Kavalee has jumped over hurdles and red tape to finally release his second film: Border Protection Squad.
Written and directed by Kavalee, starring an ensemble cast of good mates, such as Tony Martin, Peter Helliar, Ryan Shelton, Lachy Hulme, Ash Williams, Luke McGregor, Sam Pang, Andy Lee, Josh Lawson, Dave Hughes, Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald.. amongst others…
We are taken into the world of Border Protection Squad – the department who’s duty is to protect Australia from illegal immigrants and drug traffickers – and is also the basis of a reality TV show.
With the threat of network television pulling the plug on the show, two Agents (Helliar and Shelton) – one who is larger than life and extremely passionate with his job, and the other who is labelled ‘Pussy of the Year’ by work and his borderline-racist girlfriend, are instructed by their boss (Kavalee) and his clumsy assistant (Martin) to do their best to help save the show and their jobs – even if it involves going undercover with drug traffickers.
But how far can the guys go to create content for their job and their show? Will one permanently turn to the dark side of drug trafficking? Will they get the ratings they need to feature in the daily top 10 ratings? Will they actually bust some arse and save their relationships at the same time?
