Lindsay gets premiere date

Lindsay Lohan's OWN reality show is scheduled to premiere in two months despite reports she's being difficult on set.

The 27-year-old star has been filming her life post rehab for new docu-series Lindsay, airing on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

Variety reports executives have set a March 9 premiere date for the eight-part series.

Lindsay completed a 90-day court-ordered rehab stint at the end of July following a 2012 car accident in which she was accused of lying to police.

She granted Oprah her first interview days later. The women later signed a reported $2 million deal for the series.

According to a press release, "cameras follow Lindsay as she returns to New York, reunites with friends and family, and attempts to build a new life.

"As she works to stay on track amid the demands (and pitfalls) of fame, she opens up as never before, discussing everything from her emotional recovery process to her exhausting run-ins with the paparazzi."

The series is directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Amy Rice and is executive produced by Craig Piligian, Nicholas Caprio and Johnny Gould.

Recent reports suggest Lindsay has been a nightmare on set, however.

According to the New York Daily News, the actress "cancels all the time" when filming and has been "highly erratic", worrying producers the show won't be completed on schedule.

"It has been frustrating to work on this project from the start. It's all about Lindsay and it is clear she has no respect for the crew," a source said.

Producers and a spokesperson for the actress have yet to comment on the claims.
