Dina Lohan and her ex-husband, Michael Lohan, the parents of actress Lindsay Lohan and model Ali Lohan, will be among the couples seeking help on contentious relationship issues in a new VH1 series, "Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn."

The network Tuesday announced Dina Lohan, 52, of Merrick, and Michael Lohan, 55, would join reality-TV stars including Tiffany "New York" Pollard and mother Michelle "Sister" Patterson; and former "Teen Mom 3" reality star Briana Dejesus and sister Brittany Dejesus.

The show, a spinoff of VH1's "Couples Therapy With Dr. Jenn," features marriage and family therapist and author Dr. Jenn Mann, host of the call-in advice program "The Dr. Jenn Show" on Sirius XM's Oprah Radio.

The series is scheduled to premiere next year. The Hollywood Reporter said production started Monday.

The Lohans married on Nov. 2, 1985, and had four children. Dina Lohan filed for divorce in January 2005, claiming in court documents Michael Lohan was abusive and a philanderer.

They announced a divorce settlement that December, while Michael was incarcerated on charges including attempted assault on Dina's brother, drunken driving, aggravated harassment and criminal contempt, but that deal fell through. He was released from prison in March 2007, and in August they announced a new settlement, with the divorce set to be finalized three months later.
