The Mean Girls star signed up to make an eight-part documentary series for Winfrey's Own network following their candid interview after Lohan left rehab last summer (13).
The show is scheduled to air in America this month (Mar14), but a newly-released trailer highlights how close Winfrey came to shutting down the project after hearing about Lohan's failure to stick to filming rules.
The chat show legend visits the 27 year old at her New York City apartment to lay down the law, telling her, "My truth is that I really do want you to win, I really do. If that isn't what you want, I'm Ok with that. I will tell (the crew) to pack up and leave today. You need to cut the bulls**t. You really do."
The footage also features Lohan crying and demanding the crew delete an entire day's worth of filming, and she is shown in a face-off with her father Michael Lohan.
The series, entitled Lindsay, will begin airing on Sunday (09Mar14).
