The network is also planning an eight-part docuseries following the actress' attempted comeback for 2014, according to an OWN spokesperson. Lohan, 27, is currently serving a 90-day sentence in a rehabilitation facility. She most recently had guest appearances on Fox's Glee and FX's Anger Management and starred in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick, which drew 3.5 million viewers last November.
Big get interviews have been a high point for the young OWN network, just as they were for Winfrey's syndicated show. Its top two most-watched telecasts are Winfrey's 2012 sit-down with the late Whitney Houston's family and her interview with disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong last January, which drew 3.5 million viewers and 3.2 million viewers, respectively.
