The BBC Announces New Liz Taylor/Richard Burton TV Movie

8 Jun

Burton and Taylor, starring British actors Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter, is set to debut on BBC American in the fall.

After the disastrous Liz and Dick Lifetime movie, the BBC has released details about Burton and Taylor, a 90-minute TV movie to air on BBC America some time in the fall.

Academy Award Winner Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West will portray the iconic couple.

The film begins with Taylor and ex-husband Richard Burton’s onstage reunion for a 1983 revival of Private Lives on Broadway.  At the time, Taylor and Burton had been married and divorced, twice.  Private Lives was Burton’s last performance as he died in 1984.

The movie will be aired a year after the universally despised Lifetime TV movie about Taylor and Burton’s stormy relationship that starred  Lindsay Lohan.

Expectations for Burton and Taylor are high because, really – who does it better than the BBC?
