E! will air Living Lohan, which follows Lindsay Lohan’s mother and sister

This summer, E! will air a series that follows Lindsay Lohan’s mother and younger sister. Living Lohan will be produced by Bunim-Murray Productions and Maloof Television, and “go inside the Lohan’s Long Island home for the first time to follow Dina as she works double duty as mom and manager to help Ali try to follow in her big sister’s famous footsteps and pursue her own shot at stardom,” according to a press release.

The press release does its best to spin the family’s woes into a positive for the series: “Dina has faced intense scrutiny over the past year due to daughter Lindsay’s (21) highly publicized mishaps and her long-simmering divorce from her ex-husband. But the Lohan family has demonstrated great resiliency and, with Dina at the helm, they are moving on with their lives. Dina is determined to help each of her four kids fulfill their dreams and refuses to live in fear of what others may think, despite being under the paparazzi microscope,” E! says.

Bunim-Murray president Jonathan Murray, no stranger to producing train wrecks, says, “We’ve been given unprecedented access to Dina Lohan and her kids lives; as a result, our series will deliver a powerful story that will both surprise and delight E!’s viewers.” And E! VP Lisa Berger says, “This is a family that knows how to roll with the punches and come out on top. Dina is an incredibly hard-working, passionate mom that I think our viewers will find both relatable and highly entertaining.”
