Lindsay Lohan is stepping back into the spotlight and starring in a new series for MTV. This week the network confirmed that “Lohan Beach Club” (working title) is slated to premiere in 2019 and the teasers are already hitting social-media. The show will be a docuseries of sorts, executive produced by Lohan in partnership with MTV and Bunim/Murray Productions. MTV stated that the series will begin shooting this week in Mykonos, Greece, which is where Season 1 takes place.
According to MTV’s announcement, the series follows Lohan as she works to expand her business empire with the launch of “Lohan Beach House”. The seaside destination will serve as a backdrop for the show and features spa amenities, a restaurant, and a transformative day and nightclub that hopes to deliver a unique Mykonos experience. The debut of Lohan Beach House marks the star’s third business venture for Lohan in the Greek Islands, following the opening of Lohan Nightclub in Athens, Greece, and Lohan Beach House Rhodes in Rhodes, Greece.
Now you can probably see why this show is happening. MTV gets to sit back and hope that Lohan’s exploits create a ton of drama for viewers and Lohan basically gets an entire series to serve as a commercial for her new venture while calling it a Docuseries. With Lohan serving as executive producer, she probably gets a lot of say in what is kept and what is cut, so don’t expect too many situations where Lohan comes out looking bad in this series.
Lohan will lead a team of “brand ambassadors” to make her mark on Mykonos. Over the course of the season, Lohan’s team must prove their expertise, ambition and charm while helping bring Lohan’s vision to life. MTV teased the series saying, “The stakes are high as the team establishes new friendships and alliances while striving to rise above the temptations the Mykonos nightlife scene has to offer”.
“Lohan Beach Club (WT) 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 Nina Diaz, President, Programming and Development for MTV. “We are thrilled to have such a passionate and creative partner in Lindsay to help explore this intriguing culture, all through the eyes of her brand.”
Gil Goldschein, Julie Pizzi, Farnaz Farjam and Andrea Metz serve as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions. Lily Neumeyer, Jessica Zalkind and Ben Hurvitz are executive producers for MTV. Lohan is represented by APA.
