"Our goal is just to simply, show the world a window as to why people do the things they do," he says. "It's like they say, 'When the system fails you, you create your own system.'" The minute-long clip features glimpses at the ways in which people are fighting to survive while navigating the illegal markets. Michael K.

"The global docuseries will continue the work Williams began in season one, which revealed an intimate portrait of the conditions from which black markets arise and the cultural reasons behind why they persist, from carjacking in Newark, N.J. to the poaching of abalone off the coast of South Africa," a description for season 2 read. "In all-new episodes, the series will showcase rare, first-person access to the communities most impacted by the worldwide shadow economy." Michael K. Williams.
