"Liz & Dick" (Lifetime TV movie) stars Lindsay Lohan ("Mean Girls") in her highly anticipated comeback movie role as the legendary dame Elizabeth Taylor alongside Grant Bowler ("Defiance") as celebrated actor Richard Burton.

For nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were 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.

Based on the true story of the couple's passionate and tumultuous love affair, the film is from executive producer Larry A. Thompson ("Amish Grace") and was directed by Lloyd Kramer ("Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven") with a script by Christopher Monger ("Temple Grandin").

A+E Networks will handle international distribution of "Liz & Dick," which is produced by Larry A. Thompson Productions for Lifetime.
