Winfrey has landed the first interview with Lohan following the actress’ rehab stint, an OWN spokesperson confirms to Zap2it. (EW first reported the news.) That’s not all — Lohan will also star in an eight-episode docu-series to air on OWN in 2014.
Lohan is currently serving a court-ordered, 90-day stay in rehab following a probation violation. Her time is scheduled to end July 31. The Oprah interview will tape and air sometime in August, the OWN spokesperson says.
The bigger deal may be the series, though. Lohan has resisted reality-TV offers in the past, refusing to take part in the E! series “Living Lohan” that followed her mom, Dina, and younger siblings in 2008. Times, however, have changed.
Her interview with Winfrey will coincide not just with her release from rehab but also the release of “The Canyons,” the Kickstarter-funded film she made with director Paul Schrader, writer Bret Easton Ellis and porn star James Deen. It’s due to open in limited release on Aug. 2.
