Lindsay Lohan has a new TV gig — in the United Kingdom.

Lohan, who has been living in London, has joined the cast of the Sky 1 comedy “Sick Note” for its second season.

The show concerns Daniel Glass (“Harry Potter” star Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a lousy relationship and dead-end insurance job working for a rotten boss (“Miami Vice’s” Don Johnson). Lohan will play the daughter of Johnson’s character.

The show’s first season will air in the fall, with the second season currently shooting in the U.K.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Sick Note” is one of Sky 1’s new crop of edgier, more adult comedies that will air at 10 p.m.

In the first season of “Sick Note,” Glass is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor (Nick Frost), who convinces him to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from everyone.

The Merrick- and Cold Spring Harbor-raised Lohan, who turns 31 next month, has been keeping a low acting profile recently, focusing more on her work on behalf of Syrian refugees. She appeared on the London stage in 2014 in David Mamet’s “Speed-the-Plow.”
