Y’all know that the days of bootleggers, backwoods stills and “white lightning” aren’t over, but did you expect them to end up in prime time?
Tonight at 10:00 PM, Discovery Channel premieres its new series Moonshiners. Here’s how they’re billing it:
“Moonshiners tells the story of those who brew their shine – often in the woods near their homes using camouflaged equipment – and the local authorities who try to keep them honest. Viewers will witness practices rarely, if ever, seen on television including the sacred rite of passage for a moonshiner – firing up the still for the first time. They will also meet legends, including notorious moonshiner Marvin ‘Popcorn’ Sutton.”
If it’s got Popcorn, we gotta’ watch, right?
