Lindsay Lohan used to be one of the biggest names in showbiz (and pop culture), but she hasn't been doing all that much on the big or small screen in recent years. Now, she's poised to make a comeback with a brand new project that will bring her to TV. Lohan will host a show called The Anti Social Network. A teaser for the show has hit the web, and it's definitely not what we expected to see for Lohan's next project. Take a look!
The Anti Social Network will apparently put Lindsay Lohan in charge of participants' social media accounts, including Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and Twitter. She'll use her access to their social media to put them in sticky situations they definitely wouldn't end up in otherwise, and it looks like she'll have the help of participants' pals in crafting the perfect setups. The teaser features Lohan pranking a guy into posing as a nude model, trying his hand at standup comedy, and making a move on his crush...who also happens to be his boss.
Although the video doesn't make it clear how money will play into The Anti Social Network, the ka-ching sound effect indicates that cash will be involved somehow. In the case of the guy making a move on his boss, he may need that cash. Video of that particular encounter could put him in some hot water at his work, especially if his boss has bosses of her own. Sure, The Anti Social Network mostly looks like a fun new take on a classic prank show, but we can only guess at this point if there will be consequences to the hijinks.
No network is currently attached to The Anti Social Network, so we can't say where the show will ultimately air. Given the social media focus of the series, it could be a good candidate for web release. Lindsay Lohan is pretty active on social media, with posts such as her campaign for the role of Ariel in the live action Little Mermaid movie and the announcement of her intention to run for president making all kinds of headlines. Nobody has ever been entirely sure whether or not she's joking when she makes some of her posts; at least we don't have to worry about that kind of confusion with The Anti Social Network, which is clearly designed to bring the laughs.
We'll have to wait and see what platform The Anti Social Network ends up on when it makes its debut.
