OWN’s Lindsay Lohan Doc Series Bows March 9

Lindsay featuring Lindsay Lohan on OWN

“Lindsay,” director Amy Rice’s eight-part documentary series about troubled star Lindsay Lohan’s effort at recovery, will premiere the week after Oscar Sunday on OWN.

The series, produced with OWN by Pilgrim Studios and exec produced by Craig Piligian, Nicholas Caprio and Johnny Gould, depicts candid Lohan interviews on paparazzi, fame, and emotional recovery. Rice, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa are co-executive producers.

In August, OWN partnered with Lohan on an exclusive one-on-one with Oprah Winfrey. It resulted in softer ratings than comparable interviews with Whitney Houston’s family and Lance Armstrong.

OWN also recently announced plans for its first original scripted program, an adaptation of singer Darlene Love’s memoir “My Name Is Love: The Darlene Love Story.”  Winfrey and Morgan Neville are exec producing.

“Lindsay” debuts at 10 p.m. on March 9.

    i wish her the best… but i’m not going to judge her actions… i’m just going to live my own life. sure she acted a bit douschey on that show, but everyone is douschey in life. i sure as hell wouldn’t be star struck by her (or anyone). but i feel so sorry for her. everyone around her seems so false especially her parents. i wish i could give her a proper hug! she needs a hug from someone who isn’t trying to drain something from her. she needs someone to give her a hug and tell her “i do not give a fuck who you are”… hmm

    I would really like to know the truth about Lohan’s attempts at sobriety. Her recent involvements in an assault in Florida, her strange behavior with the teenagers in the hotel in NYC, her being banned from Nightclubs and yet still trying to sneak in in NYC, her constant partying in London (yet all the while sober, she claims, all the way until 5am) night after night, the photo of her reaching for the wine bottle – lead me to believe she’s not taking this sobriety thing seriously. And if Amy Rice decides to show a sanitized version (minus the yelling and screaming at the OWN crew) – it will be an insult to the millions of addicts who are struggling on a daily basis to stay sober and turn their lives around. And if the series ends with her announcing this fake film “Inconceivable” at Sundance – which has no director, DP, Editor, co-stars etc. and she’s supposedly producing (all the while she’s partying and barhopping every other night in NYC two weeks before this supposed production) – I’ll know I’ve been had yet again by Lindsay Lohan – who has never once come through with anything she has promised or sworn by, in the last decade. Sadly, I feel 2014 is the end of the line career-wise (besides stunt-casting and cameos) for Lohan. I wish it wasn’t so – but she is pathological.
