Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter star as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic, which will premiere on BBC America on Wednesday, October 16 at 9 PM as part of the network’s Dramaville block. This version of the famed Hollywood couple centers on their ill-fated reunion on and off the stage for the critically reviled 1983 revival of Noel Coward’s stage play Private Lives. (Check out the trailer here.) Burton And Taylor aired in July on BBC 4 in the UK and averaged 1.17 million viewers. The pic, a BBC Drama Production co-produced with BBC America, was penned by William Ivory and Richard Laxton directed.
