MIPTV: FremantleMedia International Takes Lindsay Lohan OWN Series
FremantleMedia International has picked up world distribution rights outside of North America for Lindsay, the eight-part documentary series on scandal-prone actress Lindsay Lohan.
The series premieres in the U.S. on the Oprah Winfrey Network March 9. Fremantle will shop the series, directed by Amy Rice (By the People: The Election of Barack Obama) to international buyers at the MIPTV market in Cannes next month.
The series is billed as a no-holds-barred account of the life of the actress as she struggles with addiction and recovery and tries to restart her career. It features an interview with Oprah Winfrey in which she tells the young actress to "cut the bullshit."
"Lindsay Lohan has been one of the most talked-about celebrities in recent years, and this one-of-a-kind documentary provides access to her life that has not previously been available," said Hayley Dickson, vp TV acquisitions and development, global content, at FremantleMedia International. "The series is open and honest and provides exclusive insight that is sure to generate interest among Lindsay Lohan's global fan base."
Pilgrim Studios produced Lindsay together with OWN with Craig Piligian, Nicholas Caprio and Johnny Gould as executive producers and Rice, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa co-executive producing.
