Lindsay Lohan to co-star with Rupert Grint in British series 'Sick Note'
UPI News Service, 06/13/2017
Lindsay Lohan has joined the Season 2 cast of the British comedy series Sick Note.
The first season is to premiere on Sky 1 this fall. Lohan, Rupert Grint, Nick Frost and Don Johnson are filming Season 2 in the United Kingdom now.
"Sick Note follows the story of Daniel Glass, a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and dead-end insurance job, under the thumb of irrepressible boss Kenny West," a synopsis explained. "Just when things couldn't get any worse, Daniel is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor Ian Glennis. When the error comes to light, Dr. Glennis convinces Daniel to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from colleagues, friends and family in a lie that spirals wildly out of control."
Lohan will play Kenny's daughter.
"One lie leads to the next in this unsettlingly brilliant comedy that will hook viewers in and have them on the very edge of their seats. Filming for Series 2 is already under way and we're delighted to confirm Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert and Nick in this stellar comedy cast," Sky's head of comedy Jon Mountague said in a statement Monday.
"We are thrilled to be making a second series of this nail-biting comedy and very excited to be welcoming the extraordinary talents of Lindsay Lohan to our all-star cast," added executive producer Jo Sargent.
Lohan, 30, is best known for her work in the films Mean Girls, Freaky Friday and The Parent Trap.
