Lindsay Lohan's Mom Dina to Star in New Reality TV Show 'DramaMamas’ (EXCLUSIVE)
It looks like a reality TV mash up of NBC's Smash and Disney's High School Musical could be hitting the small screen -- starring Hollywood's most well-known momager Dina Lohan.
Celebuzz has learned the mother of Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan has signed on to as-yet unsold documentary-series that promises to chronicle the real-life journey of launching a Broadway-bound musical from “page to stage,” while showcasing the incredible talents of our young performers and their DramaMamas, hovering not far behind.
“There is nothing more important to me than a parent standing behind their child and helping them fulfill their dreams,” Dina told Celebuzz.
Production for the series begins this weekend and will run through the summer.
The show will take the audience behind the scenes of The White Plains Performing Arts Center’s theatre company, with producers promising to take viewers on a "roller coaster adventure."
Throughout the season, DramaMamas will recruit a variety of creative “mentors” from the Broadway community, including 49-year-old Lohan, who has acted as manager for daughters Lindsay, 25, and Ali, 18.
Dina previously appeared with her children Lindsay, Ali, Cody and Michael Lohan, Jr., on the E! series Living Lohan.
“Most moms have two lives if they are lucky," executive producer and creator Linda Sawyer told Celebuzz.
"The life they commit to their children and the life they try to carve out for themselves in the professional world.
“I created a television series that blends both my worlds. When I wasn't carting my daughters to Manhattan four sometimes five days a week for singing, acting and dance lessons, I found time to produce television shows.
“As a single mother, you learn to juggle for everyone. And now, with the help of celebrity mentor and ultimate DramaMama Dina Lohan, I will document and bring you into the world of our DramaMamas by telling their stories and validating their journeys.”
The pilot is being shopped to multiple networks, but there’s no word yet on where the show will find a home.
