NEW SERIES TICKLE PREMIERES ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL AUGUST 13 AT 10PM
MOONSHINERS Spinoff Series TICKLE Features Moonshiner Tickle
With Moonshine season wrapping up for the year, Tickle, from Discovery Channel’s Moonshiners, was looking forward to some much needed rest and relaxation. But as any viewer of Moonshiners knows, Tickle’s sense of balance is usually out of whack and this time he’s stumbled onto a whole mess of problems after he comes across a hidden cache of moonshine in the woods. As any good outlaw knows, it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie, but Tickle’s not a good outlaw, and with this new find the moonshine adventures continue on Discovery with the all new series TICKLE which premieres on Tuesday, August 13 at 10PM ET/PT.
Making moonshine is an American family tradition in which distinctive recipes and techniques are passed down from generation to generation. Each recipe is different and can act as a fingerprint to determine who created the shine, and people in Appalachia don’t take kindly to having their moonshine borrowed on a permanent basis. Now that Tickle has the new stash of moonshine, he needs a way to unload it, without getting caught. He enlists the help of his most trusted friends, Howard and Moe, as he finds new ways to cover his tracks and move his newly acquired batch of shine.
Starting with a storefront designed to distract from the otherwise illicit business of distributing his newly acquired Moonshine, Tickle must remain careful to dodge the authorities, snooping townspeople and most importantly, the true owners who may or may not have serious criminal ties. As Tickle embarks upon a series of crazy schemes and outrageous adventures – he just might learn that when it comes to moonshine, making it is the easy part.
TICKLE is produced for Discovery Channel by Magilla Entertainment, where Matthew Ostrom, Laura Johnson, Brian Flanagan and Chris Tetens serve as Executive Producers. Joseph Schneier serves as executive producer for Discovery Channel and Lisbeth Lozano is associate producer.
