Well, imitation is the highest form of flattery.
Deadline Hollywood reports that a week after Hatfields & McCoys generated huge, record-breaking numbers for the History Channel, Charlize Threon will be producing a modern-day dramatic series, created by John Glenn, for NBC. Here are the details from Thursday’s story:
The project, which has a significant penalty attached to it, reignites the centuries-old family feud in a contemporary urban setting. The Hatfields have risen to incredible wealth and power, while the McCoys are working-class. Dawn Parouse Olmstead and Beau Flynn are producing with Theron’s Denver And Delilah Prods through their deal at ABC Studios. The deal extends ABC Studios’ relationship with NBC, where it co-produced the drama pilot “Beautiful People” last season.
It’d be even better if Theron was starring in the show, but there’s no way that will happen. Theron is currently starring in two of the summer’s biggest flicks, “Prometheus” and “Snow White and the Huntsman,” so it’s unlikely she’d head to the small screen anytime soon. Too bad.
