Oprah has done it again, she has booked one heck of an exclusive interview and this time it’s the interview that everyone who’s anyone in the journalism world wants. It seems the former queen of daytime had secured an exclusive sit down, no holds bar type of interview with Lindsay Lohan but the deal doesn’t stop there. Winfrey’s OWN network has also signed Lohan to an eight-episode docu-series that will reportedly follow the troubled actress as she works to rebuild her career and her fight to stay healthy. The highly coveted interview will tape and air in August with the series to hit airwaves sometime in 2014.
“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,” an OWN spokesperson confirmed.
The once promising starlet is currently serving a 90-day court-ordered stint in a rehabilitation facility that is expected to conclude on July 31. Lohan, 27, has continuously turned down unscripted project offers in the past stating she prefers to focus on scripted acting roles. She recently had guest-star appearances on Fox’s Glee and FX’s Anger Management, as well as starred as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s biopic Liz & Dick. She also stars in Paul Schrader’s upcoming film The Canyons.
What do you think? Is this the start of LiLo turning it all around for good?
