'Burton & Taylor' trailer: Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West are addicted to love -- VIDEO

A popular subject for TV movies these days, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton are being brought to life again in Burton & Taylor. Rather than attempt to chronicle the tempest that was their long relationship, the BBC film focuses on the pair’s time starring in Private Lives on Broadway.

Watch the duo debate if their attraction is an addiction while they navigate super-stardom and a keen public interest in their personal lives – all the while attempting to be taken seriously as stage actors in a failing Broadway play.

Burton & Taylor will air on BBC America in 2014, after it premieres in the U.K.
