Here's the official trailer for the new History Channel series "Hatfields & McCoys: White Lightning" that is set to debut at 10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 1, on History. The History Channel is getting ready to mix up two of the most volatile aspects of Appalachia — Hatfields and McCoys and moonshine — in the new 14-episode reality TV show series. The show will depict how new state laws allowing Mountain State made moonshine prompted a St. Louis investor to team up with the Hatfields and the McCoys up in business to make a completely authentic "Hatfield & McCoy" moonshine. "Hatfields and McCoys: White Lightning" follows these two famous families as they try to put aside their hateful history and come together to build this new life from the ground up. Before the show airs, read more about this production as Herald-Dispatch reporter Dave Lavender talks with the cast and crew, the mayor and one of the hometown producers, Bill Richardson, in Williamson, where they've been filming the show since April.
