OWN's 'Lindsay' storylines -- just the (hard, cold) facts

OWN's "Lindsay" is coming -- and sooner than you think: March 9, Sunday, 10 p.m. But it is beginning to look as though OWN plans on keeping the media in a fenced off area, so to speak, on this one: No "preview" screeners, no clips and maybe even no interviews (with Amy Rice, the director here; Linds doesn't "do" interviews.... except with Oprah who paid hard cash for this interview/docuseries package.)  That may be the smart play -- let the whole wide world see this at the same time and make up their minds then, rather than have this dismembered by critics beforehand... (critics do have a way of doing that.) 

 Which makes a release sent out earlier by OWN so intriguing -- it sent out storylines for the first four episodes. What these indicate, without even reading between the lines, is chaos and turmoil: assistants quitting, fights with dad, Oprah interventions. Some of this has already been reported in the tabs, but at least this offers a road map to the drama:

Sunday, March 9 (10 p.m.-11 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: Part One. After completing her sixth stay in rehab, actress Lindsay Lohan decides to move to New York to work on her sobriety and to rebuild her career. Fearing that this may be her last chance, Lindsay vows to finally get her life back on track. (P)

Sunday, March 16 10 p.m.-11 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: Part Two. While trying to manage her sobriety in a still-chaotic environment, Lindsay fights to move into her new apartment. She has a heated conversation with her father and struggles with her mother’s recent DUI arrest, as the series producers start to question her commitment. (P)

Sunday, March 23 (10 p.m.-11 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: Part Three. After finally getting keys to her new apartment, Lindsay refuses to let cameras film, and her assistant threatens to quit. Aware of growing production issues, Oprah travels to Lindsay's mother's Long Island home to discuss whether or not Lindsay wants to continue shooting the documentary series. (P)

Sunday, March 30 (10 p.m. - 11 p.m. ET/PT) Episode: Part Four. After a visit from Oprah, Lindsay attempts to jump-start her career by doing a skit with Jimmy Fallon, then performs court-mandated community service at a local children’s center. Michael, Lindsay’s sober coach, heads back to Los Angeles, leaving her in charge of her own sobriety.
