NEW YORK, July 15 (UPI) -- History says it plans to air a new U.S. documentary series about the real-life descendants of 19th century rivals Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield.

"Hatfields and McCoys: White Lightning" is to premiere Aug. 1.

"To this day, the Hatfields and McCoys still live along the West Virginia and Kentucky border on the same land where their ancestors waged America's most notorious family feud," the cable network said in a synopsis. "150 years later, they are still working the coal mines and still making moonshine. Divided by the Tug River and generations of bad blood, they still don't get along. Sure, over the years treaties have been signed and handshakes exchanged, but none of that can erase their violent past."
