Lifetime’s original TV movie Liz & Dick will receive its UK premiere on Lifetime UK on Thursday December 19th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Lifetime’s Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton biopic (not to be confused with the BBC’s biopic Burton and Taylor), Liz & Dick tells the story of the famous couple who, for nearly a quarter of a century, were considered Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance – often called “the marriage of the century” – was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi worldwide, their love affair was played out entirely in front of the media from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Liz and Dick shared an undeniable love greater than most people could ever dream of. The film was produced by Larry A. Thompson Productions & stars Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) and Grant Bowler (Defiance).
