In the early 2000s, Lindsay Lohan was everywhere; from movies to commercials, the young actor dominated the big and small screen. With hits like “Mean Girls” and “Freaky Friday,” it looked as if the young star was on top of the world.
Fast forward to 2017, and the actor recently stopped by ABC’s The View on Monday to talk to the hosts about her brand new TV series, “Nerd.” With Lohan and her manager Scott Carlesen in charge of the production, the show will capture Lohan taking over a stranger’s phone – and social media accounts – for 24 hours.
“I dare them to do things that they think they’re good at,” said Lohan, while giving The View audience a little insight into the show. “They’ll win money, and a part of the proceeds will go to charity.”
With similarities to the movie Nerve and MTV’s hysterical prank show Punk’d, we can expect a lot of laughs and hijinks from this new series. Lohan, who talked further about her future plans in Hollywood told the View, “I want to make my own movies; I don’t want to have to answer to anyone.”
With her first project already in the works, it looks like Lindsay is well on her way to achieving her goals. Using social media as the catalyst to launch her own series seems so fitting, as these apps are a daily part of almost everyone’s life. So we can be sure that no one is safe from a potential Twitter takeover at the hands of Lohan.
Reinserting yourself into the entertainment industry is never an easy task, but with a creative idea mixed with a meaningful purpose the chances of success are far greater. Keep a look out for “Nerd,” and make sure to always watch your back when posting that next photo on Instagram!
