There could be more Hatfields & McCoys coming to TV.

Following the enormous ratings from History Channel's “Hatfields & McCoys” movie (which was seen by a dizzying 14 million viewers last May), NBC has greenlit the pilot for TV series take on the feuding families.

Only this time, the story is set in modern times. Here's the logline for NBC's version of “Hatfields & McCoys”: “Set in present day Pittsburgh, a startling death re-ignites the feud between these two legendary families. Unleashing decades of resentment, the blue collar McCoys will put the Hatfields' wealth and power at risk as they go to war for control of the city.”
