Even with countless of rehab stints, lawsuits, and jail scares, many stars and ordinary-peeps like us are stilling pulling for Lindsay Lohan to clean up her act and actually turn acting into a respectable profession. One, big time star who may feel the same way is Oprah Winfrey, who just signed on for an interview with the troubled star and even gave a go signal for her OWN network to produce an eight-part docu-series featuring Lohan post-rehab.
Not only will Lohan sit down with the media mogul for an in-depth interview following her court-ordered rehab stint, Winfrey’s OWN cable network will also produce an eight-part docu-series that will follow Lohan’s journey to rebuild her career and stay sober.
An OWN spokesperson confirmed the news: “OWN will air an exclusive interview with Oprah and Lindsay Lohan that will tape and air in August and an eight-part documentary series with Lindsay for 2014.”
EW.com, who first reported the news, revealed that the series will start filming in August, quickly after the 27-year-old completes her latest rehab program on July 31. Lohan is on her way to fulfill a 90-day rehab stint (first at Betty Ford and now at Cliffside Malibu) ordered by a judge as part of the conditions of her plea deal surrounding misdemeanor charges related to a June 2012 car accident.
Lindsay Lohan’s latest efforts include a guest spot on Charlie Sheen’s “Anger Management,” the Lifetime TV biopic “Liz & Dick” and the upcoming Paul Schrader film “The Canyons,” which is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival (where LiLo is expected to make her first post-rehab appearance) in August.
