Lindsay Lohan has given fans their first peak at the upcoming TV movie Liz & Dick with a brand new teaser trailer of the biopic of the former screen siren Elizabeth Taylor and her tumultuous relationship with actor Richard Burton. The trailer shows Lohan in a number of stills from the film as well as some clip of her and co-star Grant Bowler - who plays Burton - and is billed as the biggest television event of the year.

The biopic of Elizabeth Taylor has been a long time coming and due to be released on the Lifetime channel in November this year, after Lohan spent the summer filming it. Over the long filming schedule there have been a number of dramas involving the film’s star, Ms Lohan, including an incident where paramedics had to be called after she had been found unconscious in her hotel room. Lindsay had collapsed as a result of exhaustion following the long days of filming and later joked about the incident on Twitter. The actors' union, SAG-AFTRA, investigated the set during filming after it emerged that other members of the crew were suffering from exhaustion during filming.

Another incident occurred when the trailer that Taylor used during the filming of Cleopatra was trashed; presumably by Lohan and her friends, however she has not been found guilty of anything yet.
