If we told you that Discovery Channel is premiering a new show called Moonshiners tonight, you might think that it was taking you back to another era in a historical piece. Not a chance. Moonshining may be a tradition dating back hundreds of years, but this multi-million dollar industry is all too current. And it comes with its own risks (let’s just say it’s not legal everywhere). In Moonshiners, Discovery goes deep into Appalachia to follow the shiners themselves and the local lawmen who try to keep them honest.
You can watch a special Moonshiners premiere episode (after Chopper Live) tonight at 10pm ET/PT, and then on its regular night starting tomorrow at the same time. Here’s a sneak peek of the show:
