More about Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar
Kim Kardashian is set to executive produce and play a significant role in the upcoming three-part BBC documentary series Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar.
Also executive produced by Kari Lia, Hamish Fergusson and Kim Kardashian, the series promises to feature "privileged access to those who knew her best, including members of Elizabeth Taylor’s family, friends, and colleagues from throughout her stellar career.”
Elizabeth Taylor, whose eight marriages, expensive taste in jewellery, love life and activism were often a fodder for media gossips, was one of the top stars in Hollywood of 1950s.
It will also show “how she reinvented the nature of fame, even as she smashed the glass ceiling in Hollywood, before going on to become a billion-dollar businesswoman, activist and advocate,” the official description read.
The documentary will feature interviews with Dr Anthony Fauci, who worked closely with the star in her fight against AIDS, Kardashian, who conducted the last interview before Taylor's death in 2011 at the age of 79, as well as late Joan Collins, a friend and contemporary.
Kim Kardashian on Elizabeth Taylor
“Elizabeth Taylor was unapologetically herself, a fighter. She is proof that you can keep evolving and changing and have different chapters in your life – and she paved the way for all of us who came after her with that blueprint,” Kim Kardashian said.
Alistair Pegg, commissioning editor at the BBC said, “This exciting series promises a new understanding of Elizabeth Taylor – both her technique and power as an actor, and her capacity for reinventing herself.”
