If you can get past the bizarre wigs, HBO’s Phil Spector could be interesting to watch. It has David Mamet as both writer and director and a cast that’s led by Al Pacino and Helen Mirren. So why after seeing the trailer am I still not sold on this dramatic retelling?
Phil Spector is [Mamet’s] exploration of the client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector (Al Pacino) and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren), who represented Spector during his first trial for murder. Mamet serves as executive producer with Barry Levinson. The cast also includes Rebecca Pidgeon, Jeffrey Tambor and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
HBO will premiere Spector on March 24, 2013 at 9pm.
