BBC Arts has partnered with the Academy Award-winning production company Passion Pictures (recognized for works such as “Searching for Sugar Man” centered on Elizabeth Taylor.

Titled “Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar,” the series will be both executive produced by and feature Kim Kardashian. The BBC unveiled this project on Monday, highlighting Taylor’s iconic status as one of Hollywood’s most renowned names.

Produced under the executive direction of Kari Lia, Hamish Fergusson, and Kardashian, the series guarantees exclusive insights with “privileged access to those who knew her best, including members of Elizabeth Taylor’s family, friends, and colleagues from throughout her stellar career.”

The documentary pledges to highlight the journey of “a superstar who transformed not just Hollywood but fame itself, as she went from child star to the highest-paid actress in the world.”

The show description challenges the traditional portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor’s life, stating, “For too long, the story of Elizabeth Taylor has been framed as a soap opera—eight marriages, diamonds, and addictions.” This series endeavors to grant Elizabeth Taylor the acknowledgment she rightfully deserves in all her facets: as an actor, rebel, business mogul, and activist. It seeks to unveil how Taylor pioneered the blueprint for contemporary celebrity, providing a more nuanced depiction of her life and influence.

Alistair Pegg, the commissioning editor at the BBC, added, “This exciting series promises a new understanding of Elizabeth Taylor — both her technique and power as an actor, and her capacity for reinventing herself.”
