Kim Kardashian is making a docuseries about 'idol' Elizabeth Taylor.

Updated: Feb 28

Kim Kardashian's love of Elizabeth Taylor is forever. The reality star is executive producing — and appearing in — a new docuseries about the screen legend.

Elizabeth Taylor: Rebel Superstar is the working title of the three-part BBC Arts project, which is already in production. According to a press release, the Cleopatra star's life story has always “been told as a soap opera” (the marriages, addiction and glamour), but this series looks at how she “created the blueprint for modern celebrity.” Taylor went from child star to Academy Award-winner to billion-dollar businesswoman. It promises never-before-heard audio tapes, interviews (with family, friends and colleagues) and unseen TV footage.

Just before Taylor died of congestive heart failure in March 2011, she was interviewed by the reality star for the February 2011 issue of Harper’s Bazaar. During the conversation — which took place via phone and email after Taylor fell ill (they never met) — Kardashian couldn’t hide her fandom. “You are my idol. But I'm six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?” was the Skims founder’s first question. Later on in the chat, Kardashian gushed, “I am a huge Elizabeth Taylor nerd” and praised the movie star for having “always been ahead of your time.”

For the same magazine issue, Kardashian channeled one of Taylor’s most famous roles — Cleopatra in the 1963 film — but put her own mark on it. She dubbed the shoot: “Cleopatra with a K.”
