Is the Moonshiners fake?
One of the burning questions that every viewer of ‘Moonshiners’ has is to know if the show is real or fake. The show is a ‘docudrama’ produced by Magilla Entertainment. The entertainment company has also produced other shows like Long Island Medium, Beachfront Bargain Hunt, and others.
As per Grunge.com: “Magilla may not be the gold standard for keeping the “reality” in reality TV or even the cubic zirconium standard.” However, the cast members have claimed that the show is real and everything that happens behind the camera is their reality.

How does Moonshiners get away with being on TV?
Several people have wondered how the cast members get away with the illegal activity if they are appearing on television. Luckily, Tim and Tickle from the show sat down with Fox to reveal how it is possible for them to appear on television and not get caught.
Tickle revealed that the police have to physically catch them in the act to get arrested. He said: “they’ve got to actually catch you doing something wrong. By the time that hits the TV… we’re not sitting where we [were] at the time. You know, they watch me on TV Tuesday nights at 9, I’m still not sitting in the same spot at 10 o’clock when that show goes off. It’s non-taxed; that’s pretty much the only reason it’s illegal.”
Meanwhile, Tim added: “There’s not really a big fear here. It’s just that the government can’t get their money accounted for. That’s all it is. They don’t have a taste regulation today. I mean right now the legal brand of whiskey on the shelf, there’s no taste regulator on it. You can go buy anything and say ‘I don’t like it. It doesn’t taste good.’ There are no regulations on it.”
