NEW YORK (AP) — Lindsay Lohan's campaign for a career comeback will take another step when her new film, "Liz & Dick," airs next month.

Lifetime network says the film will premiere on the network on Nov. 25.

Lohan plays screen diva Elizabeth Taylor in this story of her quarter-century love affair with celebrated leading man Richard Burton, whom she married and divorced twice. They met 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.
