  • A NEW travel adventure show about Kentucky’s Rivers, Lakes, Streams, Spirits, Brews & Wines.

    Kentucky has over 90,000 miles of lakes rivers and streams and features an endless amount of water front acreage. It’s also quite famous for some of the world’s best known distilleries. This show will explore the secrets and histories of our intricate waterways in a recreational context with sidebars (excuse the pun) to the state’s distilleries, breweries and wineries. The Downstream television show will be an educational travel series with a POV perspective, somewhat scripted, somewhat un-scripted, reality based adventures.
