Lindsay Lohan's OWN docu-series "Lindsay" is leaving nothing on the cutting room floor.
The first preview of the series, which chronicles Lohan's attempt to rehabilitate her life and career after wading through several highly publicized struggles, is as transparent about Lohan's issues as the difficulty OWN had in creating the show.
In the clip, Lohan admits that she feels like "a prisoner ... all of the time" with so many cameras tracking her every move, and expresses frustration that the messiness of her situation could be captured for all to see.
There are heartwarming moments, such as when her mother, Dina, welcomes the 27-year-old back to her New York home, but there are also the reports from Oprah Winfrey's OWN team that Lohan wasn't cooperating as she'd agreed to.
Finally, Winfrey herself has a sit-down with the young star.
"My truth is that I really do want you to win," Winfrey bluntly said. "If that isn't what you want, I'm OK with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today. ... You need to cut the bulls***, you really do."
Winfrey and Lohan reached a deal last summer to create a program about her recovery in addition to having Lohan sit down with the media titan immediately upon her release from rehab that August.
In the trailer, Lohan reassured Winfrey that she very much wanted to participate, saying, "I know that this is my last shot at doing what I love to do."
We'll see how it plays out for the former "Mean Girls" star when the series, directed by Amy Rice, premieres on OWN March 9.
