As previously reported on, Lindsay was set to sit down with iconic journalist for an extensive, "no holds barred, no questions off-limits" interview.

Barbara spent half a day with Lindsay on the set of "Liz & Dick" this summer, where the actress gave Barbara a tour of the set, while ABC filmed behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Grant Bowler (playing Richard Burton), producer Larry Thompson and the movie's director.

Footage from Barbara's visit to the Lifetime movie's set was slated to air as part of the now-canceled interview.
