A few months ago, Lindsay Lohan announced she would be hosting a social media prank show called The Anti-Social Network. The show went nowhere. That fact that The Anti-Social Network appears to be done clearly hasn’t deterred her from continuing to reach for the small-screen stars.
Page Six says that Lindsay is currently in Cannes (let’s say she’s there for “offshore networking“). A source claims Lindsay was overheard at a party last Sunday telling people that she was currently writing a television series about Russian oligarchs for Netflix. She allegedly claimed she was working on it with a partner, and that they were writing every day in Cannes. As for the story, it’s supposedly about three Russian princesses of different ages. The source says Lindsay pitched it as “kind of like The OA“, Netflix’s science fiction mystery drama about a missing woman who returns after 7 years from another dimension. Oh yeah, that totally sounds like the basis for a show about several generations of Russian princesses.
Lindsay plans on acting in the show, and either directing or co-directing. According to Lindsay, she would soon be going to Moscow to see some of the people who are working on the show with her. Page Six reached out to Netflix, but they haven’t gotten back to them. Lindsay hasn’t said anything official about this alleged project, but she did recently tweet evidence that she knows how to use Netflix, so that’s something.

Everything about Lindsay’s pitch sounds like something from the brain of a person who has inhaled too many yacht fumes. With that being said, I would 100% watch it when it undoubtedly premieres on Netflix. Or if Netflix passes, a live stream of whatever Moscow’s version of a cable access channel is. Who cares that filming will most likely shut down after Lindsay is seen making a quick getaway in a princess tiara with investment cash in one hand and a case of vodka in the other. It’s Lindsay Lohan as an inter-dimensional time-jumping Russian princess; even one episode would be a gift to humanity.
