Lindsay Lohan, 22, is starring in a new movie called Labor Pains. The film, about a woman who fakes a pregnancy to save herself from getting fired, will not be premiering in theaters. It won’t even be going straight to DVD video. It’s going to cable.
Labor Pains will make it’s debut on ABC Family, the same channel that scored big with The Secret Life of the American Teenager, about a teen who accidentally gets pregnant and deals with the realistic consequences. By showing up on the hot teen-viewed channel, there’s a chance that it might offer the film a wider audience and greater commercial potential.
Labor Pains, which costars SNL’s Chris Parnell and Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Cheryl Hines, will first crown on ABC Family in July. And, just in case the family is on summer vacation, the laughter will hit video stores the following month.
