Lifetime has set a premiere date for "Liz & Dick," starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor.

The network says the film will air on Nov. 25.

The film follows Taylor's quarter-century love affair with celebrated leading man Richard Burton, whom she married and divorced twice. Their romance began on the set of the film "Cleopatra," with Taylor in the title role.

Grant Bowler, whose credits include the TV series "True Blood" and "Lost," plays Burton.

The 26-year-old Lohan has been plagued by legal and substance abuse problems in recent years. During filming of "Liz & Dick," she crashed her Porsche into a dump truck. A week later she was treated by paramedics for exhaustion and dehydration.
