Plot Synopsis

HATFIELDS AND MCCOYS: WHITE LIGHTNING is a reality series that follows the current real-life descendants of Randall McCoy and Devil Anse Hatfield as they face a business opportunity that could rewrite history. Monsell Darville, an executive for a liquor company, is working to bring a new product to stores, and he wants America's most famous feuding families to cooperate and help him put Hatfields and McCoys moonshine on store shelves. To this day, the Hatfields and McCoys still live along the West Virginia and Kentucky border, where, divided by the Tug River and generations of bad blood, they still don't get along, even though both clans still work the coal mines and make moonshine. Now, the legendary clans are trying to put aside their hateful history and come together. To bring an authentic new moonshine brand to market, Darville approaches McCoy patriarch Jim, a direct maternal descendent of Randall McCoy, to propose a business partnership with the Hatfields -- one that would create a Hatfield & McCoy moonshine. This project would require Jim to work alongside patriarch Mark Hatfield, the great-great-great grandson of Devil Anse Hatfield. Plus, both families would have to reveal their secret moonshine recipes, supply their legendary well water, and actually get along -- at least long enough to develop the new product.
