A drama centered on the relationship between Phil Spector and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden while the music business legend was on trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson.
I didn’t follow the Phil Spector trial in any depth because, well, I try not to concern myself with gossip-rag stuff like that. I am, however, quite intrigued by the HBO film based on the trial starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren and written and directed by none other than David Mamet. Now, I know that Mamet’s involvement should probably be the biggest incentive to see this, but frankly, I’m much more excited by the idea of seeing Pacino try to act serious while wearing that enormous afro wig. Hoo-ah!
Phil Spector premieres on HBO on March 24, 2013.
