IT'S TIME TO 'SHINE WHEN "MOONSHINERS" RETURNS TO DISCOVERY CHANNEL ON NOVEMBER 17 AT 9 PM ET/PT
Moonshine season is in session. Spring has come to the Appalachian Mountains and as temperatures rise, so does demand for America's oldest spirit. MOONSHINERS returns to Discovery on November 17th at 9 PM ET/PT.
This season, the shiners set out to reclaim the backwoods to meet the ever-increasing demand of thirsty buyers. With the law looming around every corner and rival shiners moving in on long established territory, it's a race against time to brew the very best and strike it rich.
New to the series, Louisiana father-daughter shiners Patti and David reinvigorate the tradition the bayou way. Meanwhile, Tim Smith's legal operation outgrows the production means of his current distillery. Faced with the task of expanding his operation, Tim risks leaving his home state to protect the future of his business.
Starting with the techniques honed over generations of distilling by their forefathers, modern moonshiners are revolutionizing their craft with artisanal recipes and are ready to go head to head with America's big commercial distillers.
MOONSHINERS is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment. Matthew Ostrom, Laura Palumbo Johnson and Christopher Tetens are the executive producers and Gerry Grzywacz is co-executive producer for Magilla Entertainment. Joseph Schneier is the executive producer, and Lisbeth Lozano and Max Micallef are Coordinating Producers for Discovery Channel.
