Production is underway on a new Elizabeth Taylor documentary series with Kim Kardashian among the executive producers.

BBC Arts commissioned the three-part Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar (w/t) from Passion Pictures, for delivery to BBC Two.

The executive producers are Kari Lia, Hamish Fergusson and Kardashian, and will feature contributions from members of Taylor’s family, friends, and colleagues from throughout her extraordinary career, including Joan Collins, Margaret O’Brien, Carole Bayer Sager and Dr Anthony Fauci, who worked with Taylor in the fight against AIDS.

Kardashian, who conducted the last interview with the superstar before she died, said: “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.”

Fergusson added: “Elizabeth developed and defined our understanding of stardom and celebrity across decades. A unique talent and true luminary, we’re hugely excited to explore her extraordinary life and enduring legacy.”

James House is the series director and Jemma Chisnall is the series producer. The commissioning editor for the BBC is Alistair Pegg.
