Lohan in talks to star in comedy show

Lindsay Lohan is in serious talks to star in a new TV series.

The 27-year-old actress, who completed 90 days of court-ordered treatment in rehab at the end of July and is determined to get her career back on track, has been approached by Danny McBride to star in a comedy he is developing for HBO.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Lindsay really hit it off with the actor and producer, 36, when she filmed a cameo role for his show 'Eastbound & Down' recently and he was so impressed with her work ethic that he thinks she is the perfect actress to work on his upcoming project.

Danny is developing the comedy series that will revolve around a high school with his producing partner Jody Hill.

'The Canyons' star apparently loves the concept and is really hoping it works out.

The 'Mean Girls' actress has enjoyed a career renaissance since leaving Cliffside rehab centre in Malibu last month.

Lindsay has successfully guest-hosted 'Chelsea Lately', as well as pouring her feelings out to Oprah Winfrey in a revealing interview.

The star has also inked a $2m deal with Oprah's OWN network to make an eight-part documentary about the ups and downs of her career.
