Synopsis

Canadian border officer Doug Pearson and his coworkers are thrown for a loop when a new pilot program at work pairs them up with American border officers to try and take down a notorious drug smuggling ring. Tensions occasionally run high among this goofy troupe as both sides of the 49th parallel try to prove their worth. "Passports, Please" is a comical exploration of the relationship between Canadians and Americans and their foolish notions about each other. Every week the border officers encounter new faces and hilarious hijinx as they attempt to determine once and for all which nation's citizens are the true North American idiots.
