Moonshining as a commodity

Discovery channel and Magilla Entertainment have created a new show that works around the law of moonshining. This show is called “Moonshiners,” it is set in Appalachia, and it is supposed to give the public a look at how the moonshining industry is still flourishing. The producers of this show have also produced “Jersey Shore,” “Jersey Couture,” “Bayou Billionaires,” and many other reality television shows about American families and lives. These shows have all come out within the last year and a half and they air on many different channels, appealing to a great number of people. I have inserted a clip that introduces the main characters of the show and gives a small glimpse at what the industry has become and how it is being portrayed.
