History Channel to air series on ‘Ice Road Truckers’

| 6/15/2007

The story of six truckers who drive 18-wheelers on Canada’s ice roads is coming to The History Channel this weekend.

The 10-week series will chronicle two months of the ice truckers’ lives, showing how they haul freight across frozen Canadian lakes that usually bear their trucks’ weight – but sometimes don’t.

The rigs haul supplies to the Northwest Territories’ diamond mines, which are located in roadless, nearly impassable terrain near the Arctic Circle.

The series begins Sunday night at 10 p.m. EDT, and will continue every Sunday night for 10 weeks. Additional airings may be scheduled, so watch your local television listings for those dates and times.
