Lohan series to be shot like documentary

The upcoming Lindsay Lohan series on OWN will be more documentary than reality show, The Associated Press reports.

OWN and Harpo Studios presidents Erik Logan and Sheri Salata told journalists Thursday attending the annual Television Critics Association press tour that filmmaker Amy Rice will direct the series.

Rice directed the 2009 documentary "By the People: The Election of Barack Obama." The series will be produced by Pilgrim Studios, and Oprah Winfrey will appear in the show.

In a one-on-one interview with The Associated Press, Logan expanded on plans for the show, saying that "part of what makes this opportunity very exciting [is] because I don't think it's gonna be anything that anybody expects." Logan said Winfrey is currently on vacation, and with Lohan still in rehab the direction of the series will unfold once the two begin talking.

The partnership will begin with an exclusive interview to tape and air in August, followed by an eight-part series slated to air in 2014.

As for reports of a $2-million deal for Lohan to agree to do the show, Logan and Salata would not comment.

"We don't comment on any of the deals that we have with any of our partners through any of our contracts," Logan said. "Those are all confidential and proprietary. We have a great partner with Lindsay's manager and her team. They've been very collaborative and I think they're all aligned with potentially what we want to accomplish so we're excited about getting to work."

Meanwhile, the network said that Winfrey's previously announced one-on-one interview with Lohan will air Aug. 18.
