HISTORY's "HATFIELDS & MCCOYS" starring Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton was broadcast on Memorial Day, May 28th. The miniseries, was produced by Leslie Greif's Production Company, Thinkfactory Media, and Kevin Costner as producing partner, chronicles the bloody hostilities between two clans that escalated to the point of near war between two states. Sony Pictures Television distributes THE HATFIELDS and McCOYS.
The Hatfield-McCoy saga begins with "Devil" Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy. Close friends and comrades during the Civil War, they returned to their neighboring homes - Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky - to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon exploded into all-out warfare between the two families. As hostilities grew, friends, neighbors and outside forces joined the fight, bringing the two states to the brink of another Civil War.
