Over the last few months you’ve been hearing a lot about a little show called “Whisker Wars” that is premiering on IFC on Friday, August 5th. The Thom Beers’ (“Deadliest Catch” “Ice Road Truckers”) production is a look at the weird and wonderful world of competitive facial hair growing. It follows a group of hirsute characters as they face off (literally) in Bend, Oregon and then prepare for beard battle at the international competition in Norway.
We’re excited about “Whisker Wars” and to get you even more excited about the show, we will be unveiling sneak peeks all week leading up to the big premiere. The first one airs Sunday during the first commercial break in “Gone Baby Gone,” which starts at 8:30 p.m. ET. Then Monday through Thursday they will air during the first break in our 8 p.m. ET programming. Over the week, you’ll meet Jack Passion, Myk O’Connor, Allan Demming, the Austin Facial Hair Club and a bunch of other whisker wannabes, beard groupies, and hairy henchmen. So put on your fake beard and tune in each night at 8 or 8:30 p.m. ET and then we will see you on Friday, August 5th, 11 p.m. ET for the premiere.
