Discovery’s ‘Moonshiners’ Adds One More: Meet Chico (Exclusive Video)

Tim stumbles on a new employee just when he and Steve need it most

The moonshine industry is amazingly lucrative on both the illegal and legal sides of it.

And on Discovery’s “Moonshiners,” Tim is realizing that going legal with his operation is more work than he can bear alone.

Enter Chico. He’s been in trouble with the law and did his time, but he has found out that employers are still reticent to hire an ex-con. Going from one temp job to another, he doesn’t know that he’s about to become part of the moonshine business.
