Ice road reality series airs

| 5/21/2008

The second season of the popular documentary-style TV show “Ice Road Truckers” begins at 9 p.m. Eastern time on June 8. The first season, which launched in June 2007 on The History Channel, had record high ratings of 3.4 million overall.

On this second season, the drivers and camera crew are in the remote communities of Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, more than 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle. In a period of about two months, two clients collaborate with three competitive trucking companies to move hundreds of heavy, oversized loads through frigid, often dangerous conditions.

Four familiar faces – Alex Debogorski, Hugh Rowland, Drew Sherwood and Rick Yemm – will return from last season. They will be joined by newcomers Erik DuFresne and Jerry Dusdal.

Producers describe DuFresne as an experienced, environmentally conscious French Canadian. Dusdal is a former driver who is now the field supervisor at Mullen’s Trucking. He is responsible for the trucks and for keeping the ice road truckers safe.
