Son of a B**** comes to Walter Presents

Channel 4

Son of a B**** follows the story of a Brazilian football referee Juarez Gomes da Silva, a man who dreams of refereeing the World Cup final.

On the pitch, Juarez’s career is soaring but off it, his personal life is about to unravel. Constant squabbles with the ex–wife he cheated on, battling the bulge with performance enhancing drugs and dating a female lineswoman who is offered the chance to become a playboy centerfold are just a handful of the issues Juarez is forced to contend with.

Son of a B**** is described by Channel 4 as a ‘funny half hour, thirteen-part series’ – which we’re promised is overflowing with sex, football and the ups and downs of one man’s fortunes as he juggles the two things he loves most: his career and his family. Prepare yourself for an irreverent South American cocktail, where football is king and temptation looms large. A light-hearted comedy that may, just for once, have you cheering for the referee.
