Coal mining is a business, and the economy of coal is more complicated than you think. Coal airs Wednesdays at 10PM/9c only on Spike.
Following in the footsteps of his grandfather who took him underground for the first time when he was 12, Jeremy has close to a decade of mining under his belt. A car accident cost him a college basketball scholarship and he had to move back home and take a job in the mines. Jeremy was seriously injured in a rock fall that left him covered for more than 30 minutes underground. He was out of work for more than a month and was afraid to go back into “the hole,” but for the sake of his two daughters, faced his fear and now mining at Cobalt Coal.
No one ever said coal mining was easy, but the men of Cobalt Coal do it for a reason. One of those reasons is their family. See what else keeps them motivated underground and how things have changed for miners over the years.
With the premiere of 'Coal' less than a week away, executive producer, Thom Beers tells us why he had to make this show and why you should watch it. Coal airs Wednesdays at 10PM/9c only on Spike.
