Legendary movie star Al Pacino is poised to make his television debut as a man who refuses to accept he is dying of AIDS.

The Scarface actor had previously insisted he's only interested in starring on stage and the big screen.

But now 63-year-old Al will star alongside Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson in American mini-series Angels in America.

The programme is based on the play by Tony Kushner and follows the lives of two couples in the '80s.
