CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. - A feud between neighbors has attracted the attention of reality television producers.


Carla Pickett has been feuding with her neighbor Terry Saylor for five years.


Pickett said, "There is nothing I could say nice about that woman. She has caused me so much pain and so much trouble and so much money."


Saylor said, "I could work with her in an honest way but there is not an honest bone in that woman's body."


Last week Saylor was in court for a criminal trespassing charge. The case was bound over to a grand jury.


According to the Chester County Sheriff's Department they have been called out to the homes twelve times since 2009.


Saylor said, "Would I be interested in it, hell yeah! I could put up a better fence than Carla."


According to Pickett a producer from New York called and is interested in a documentary-style television series about the families and their feud. The producer interested stated she develops programming for Discovery, National Geographic and History Channels.


Saylor said, "Would I be interested in it, hell yeah! I could put up a better fence than Carla."


Pickett said, "We don't have Yankees down here. They need to go back up to Illinois."


Pickett said she is thinking about putting her house up for sale.


"Amen, Amen to that. Don't leave on my account. Please don't leave on my account" said Saylor.
