U.S. cable network History is to begin airing the reality series Dark Horse Nation (pictured) later this month.
Produced by Warrior Poets, the 12-episode show is set in the Marshall, Michigan-based craft brewery Dark Horse Brewing Company and stars founder and owner Aaron Morse. It will begin airing on July 29 at 10 p.m.
Dark Horse began operating in 1997 and its beers are now distributed in 12 states. The series will follow Morse and his staff as they attempt to turn the brand into a household name, build additions to the company compound and undertake “outlandish inventions.” The show’s title is taken from the nickname for the Dark Horse fanbase.
The cast also features Morse’s father and co-owner Wacky Morse; head of maintenance Cabe; head of brewery operations Wiggs; and head of shipping and receiving Chappy.
Tim Healy and Steve Ascher are exec producing for History. Jeremy Chilnick, Matthew Galkin, Ethan Goldman, Morgan Spurlock, and Elizabeth Wolff are the executive producers for Warrior Poets.
