Moonshiners have been around in the U.S. since the Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s. Surprisingly, there are still a number of Americans who make moonshine -- an illegally produced distilled beverage -- mainly in the Appalachian region of the country. This docuseries tells the stories of people who brew their shine, often under the cloak of darkness in woods near their homes, and the authorities who try to keep them honest. The show allows viewers to witness practices rarely seen on television, including firing up the still for the first time -- a moonshiner's rite of passage. The show also introducers viewers to moonshining legends such as Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton.

In 2013, using marijuana recreationally became legal in Colorado and Washington, and in many other states it is not against the law to use the drug for medicinal purposes. In California and Oregon, however, harsh marijuana laws still exist, but it doesn't stop the cultivation and use of the drug from flourishing. "Weed Country" takes viewers to the border of those two states -- deep inside a wilderness land known as the Emerald Triangle -- where the business of growing pot is cutthroat, and only the best and most cunning survive. They're up against law enforcement officials -- heavily armed with weapons and helicopters for aerial surveillance -- who will stop at nothing to take down the growers' operations and cut off their supply chains.

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia, "Southern Justice" documents -- in a cinema verite fashion -- the work of law enforcement agencies in Sullivan County, Tenn., and Ashe County, N.C. With a combined population of fewer than 200,000, both small counties have their local charm, but they also have their share of hardships. Methamphetamine, prescription drugs, and alcohol play a role in a large portion of local crimes. Incorporating a shared philosophy best described as"Andy Griffith in the 21st century," the sheriffs and their deputies are tasked with protecting these unique, close-knit communities, and they often must use a mixture of action and compassion. And if a peaceful solution proves impossible, both agencies are ready with SWAT teams to handle the most violent situations.

Street racing in the U.S. is the subject of this docu-reality series, which purportedly provides an inside look into the action both on the road and behind the scenes. In Oklahoma City, for example, racers boast having the fastest street cars in the country, and the racing, they say, comes first -- before family, before friends and before work. From a 1969 Chevy Nova to a race-ready farm truck, the vehicles -- and their drivers -- come in all shapes and sizes and have one thing in common: the need for speed.
