LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Long before we had Trump vs. Rosie, Tupac vs. Biggie, Carson vs. Rivers, or Axl vs. Slash, there was the biggest celebrity beef of them all: Hatfields vs. McCoys. The bloodletting of that late-19th-century Appalachian family feud became the stuff of international legend, but until now, remarkably, never a major mass entertainment.
That oversight will finally be corrected with the History Channel’s six-hour miniseries, “Hatfields & McCoys,” made possible by the combined passion and stardom of Kevin Costner, a producer on the project who also plays the peculiarly named Devil Anse Hatfield. He was joined by top “real McCoy” Bill Paxton, the “Big Love” star who may not be as famous for Westerns as Costner, but who does bring some experience at playing perplexed patriarchs.
A TRULY AMERICAN STORY
Stories are told by people over the years, but none are as real as the story of the Hatfields and McCoys. Truly one of the longest standing family feuds in recorded history. Full of heartbreak, love and loss. Experience it on TV with the History Channel.
