UK distributor TVF International has struck a deal with Hulu to offer war-on-drugs doc Breaking the Taboo on the digital platform later this month.

The documentary, made by Sundog Pictures and narrated by actor Morgan Freeman (pictured above), features interviews with former U.S. presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, along with entrepreneur Richard Branson, examining the cost of the global war on drugs.

The film premiered on YouTube last December, and is now launching on Hulu and Hulu Plus on July 20. TVF is offering the doc in both English and Spanish, and as a 52-minute and 72-minute film.

UK-based Sundog Pictures is run by partners Sam Branson and Johnny Webb, along with commercial director Nick Ryle.
