Hatfield & McCoys is the true story of a lifelong family feud that almost spawned a war between Kentucky and West Virginia. The cast includes Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton as the opposing family patriarchs, as well as Mare Winningham, Powers Boothe and Tom Berenger. 

"With all the success we have had at History, we felt strongly for some time that we should own historical drama, and in true History fashion, we have done it, with — pardon the pun — guns ablazin!" Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of History, said in a statement.
