Lifetime's much-hyped made-for-TV movie based on the life of Elizabeth Taylor, starring Lindsay Lohan, finally has a trailer... a teaser, at least. The 30-second clip gives us a peek at the up-and-down, on-and-off-screen love affair of Taylor and Richard Burton as portrayed by Lohan and "True Blood" actor, Grant Bowler. While the teaser leaves much to the imagination (Lohan's sole trio of sound bites include future classics, such as: "I hate you!" and "Who's counting?"), our interest was piqued by what the network has pegged as the "Biggest television event." After all, one character sums up what appears to be the plot quite perfectly: "They drink. They fight. They fornicate!"
The film will debut on the Lifetime network in November.
