LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Lindsay Lohan gets out of rehab this summer, Oprah Winfrey will be waiting to talk to her.

Winfrey's cable channel, OWN, said Friday that Winfrey is getting an "exclusive" interview with Lohan that will tape and air in August.

In May, Lohan checked into a Southern California rehab center for a 90-day stay, part of a plea deal in a misdemeanor case filed after a car accident. She's expected to finish rehab around the end of July.

OWN says it also plans an eight-part documentary series with Lohan, to air in 2014.

The 27-year-old Lohan, whose credits include "The Parent Trap" and "Liz & Dick," has struggled with legal and other woes. OWN and Winfrey have scored ratings with other newsworthy celebrity interviews, including Lance Armstrong and Rihanna.
