The cable network has tapped Oscar winner Kevin Costner to produce and star as "Devil" Anse Hatfield.
The project, which will center on the bloody hostilities between two clans that escalated to the point of near war between two states, will air next year, the 150th anniversary of the country's most infamous family feud.
"The Hatfields & McCoys is a classic tale of American history. These are names that are widely recognized, yet few people know the real story that made them famous," said History president and general manager Nancy Dubuc in a statement.
Added Costner, "As an avid history fan, I am thrilled to join with Leslie Greif and History in this dramatic re-telling of a classic and timeless tale that is forever immersed in the folklore of our country.”
