First look: Helena Bonham Carter as Elizabeth Taylor and Dominic West as Richard Burton in BBC America's 'Burton & Taylor'

dominic-west-richard-burton-helena-bonham-carter-elizabeth-taylor-bbc-america.jpgBBC America has released the first photo of Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter in character as screen icons Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor for the upcoming bio-pic "Burton and Taylor."

The 90-minute drama will premiere this fall, nearly a year after Lifetime's disastrous "Liz & Dick" starring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler. The photo pretty much proves all comparisons are entirely moot.

"Burton and Taylor" will follow the celebrity couple during their ill-fated stint co-starring in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's classic play "Private Lives."
