Lindsay Lohan's reality-TV series is a go.
MTV on Monday confirmed the actress-entrepreneur's earlier statements that the cable network was planning a behind-the-scenes reality show about her newly opened beach club on the Greek resort island of Mykonos. The series, under the working title "Lohan Beach Club," has begun shooting and is scheduled to premiere next year.
"Pack your bags, MTV. We're going to Mykonos," the "Mean Girls" star, 32, said in a promotional video accompanying the announcement. "I've joined the MTV family, and I'm Lindsay Lohan. … Get ready." Lohan Beach House Mykonos, on the Kalo Livadi beach, launched on May 26. Lohan posted a selfie to her Instagram account Monday wearing a white shirt, orange tank top and jean shorts, with the caption including "@MTV" and "#work," as well as emojis of hearts and hands in a prayer pose.
The star, originally of Cold Spring Harbor and Merrick, had first mentioned the series in an interview with The New York Times on July 2, in which the newspaper paraphrased her as having "plans for a 'Vanderpump Rules'-style reality show for MTV centered around the club." That Bravo show stars Lisa Vanderpump of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and centers on her West Hollywood restaurant and lounge Sur and the various romances and rivalries among the staff.
MTV also confirmed a Hollywood Reporter article of July 21 stating the series would be produced by reality-TV powerhouse Bunim/Murray, whose shows include "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," "Project Runway" and the 2008 E! series "Living Lohan."
As the network described the new series, Lohan "will lead a team of handpicked brand ambassadors" who "must prove their expertise, ambition and charm" as they establish "friendships and alliances while striving to rise above the temptations the Mykonos nightlife scene has to offer."
The show "offers viewers VIP access to one of the most exclusive destinations in the world, and a behind-the-scenes look at how a young, successful entrepreneur runs her empire," said MTV programming and development president Nina Diaz in a statement.
Lohan has sold her stake in an earlier, namesake Athens club that she had opened in 2016 with Greek restaurateur Dennis Papageorgiou. Her second beach club, Lohan Beach House Rhodes, opened earlier this month.
