Kim Kardashian is adding executive producer to her never-ending resume … for a documentary series centered on Elizabeth Taylor — and she’ll be starring in it, too!
Yes, you heard right … after obsessing over Marilyn Monroe for a while — see the whole dress thing — the reality star has found a new infatuation with the late and great Hollywood icon — jumping on board the new BBC Arts 3-parter, “Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar.”
Kim, who conducted Taylor’s last interview ever before her 2011 passing, will be quizzed about her personal relationship with the late legend for the doc — and she’s already gushed in a statement the actress’ life story proved to her you can keep evolving and have different chapters in life … something she’s certainly applied to her own fame game.
In fact, there’s probably no one better for the gig, if we’re being honest … Kim’s embedded herself at the forefront of celeb culture today, just like Elizabeth once did in her heyday … and it’s pretty much a given that Kim’s romances, trendsetting ways and businesses will be studied by future generations.
But for now … Elizabeth and how she created the celeb blueprint during Hollywood’s Golden Age is the main focus — and Kim is partially in the driver’s seat to bring it to life.
Never-before-heard audio tapes, interviews, unseen TV footage and rich archival movie footage will be used in the doc, which will delve into her 8 marriages, diamonds, and addictions as well as all the hats she wore as an actor, rebel, business mogul and activist.
The doc from Oscar-winning production firm Passion Pictures won’t rely solely on Kim’s vision … Kari Lia and Hamish Fergusson will also serve as EP. It will air on UK’s BBC Two and BBC iPlayer — a U.S. network has yet to be confirmed.
First acting, now producing … Kim’s all in on showbiz outside of reality TV these days.
