BBC3 Call in Hollywood Actress, but what have India done to deserve this?

January 15th, 2010

1211_lindsay_lohan_india_4190513_fame_exc1Hollywood actress and troubled starlet, Lindsay Lohan, will investigate child trafficking in India for a BBC3 documentary (the designing intelligence that gave us Freaky Eaters, My Man Boobs and Me, and Fuck Off, I’m Fat). And no, this is not a dippy film script or Paris Hilton-style reality TV show. It’s serious stuff dontcha know. Lindsay Lohan in India will follow Lohan as she meets children forced into sweat shops and prostitution, as well as former traffickers.

In December, the 23-year-old actress spent a week in India where, according to the BBC <http://www.bbc.co.uk/tv/comingup/lindsay-lohan-in-india/> , she visited “a shelter where young girls promised domestic work for India’s burgeoning middle classes were trafficked into brothels and forced into prostitution.”

The actress also took to Twitter while abroad to share one of her “lifelong dreams” with her followers.

“Over 40 children saved so far… Within one day’s work… This is what life is about… Doing THIS is a life worth living!!!” she tweeted December 9th. “Focusing on celebrities and lies is so disconcerting, when we can be changing the world one child at a time…. hope everyone can see that.” We see that Lindsay. Why would anyone focus on celebrities, write about their travels around the world – their interest in child trafficking and prostitution – and then perhaps, lets’ say, air it on television?

Blakeway Productions (part of the 3BM Television and Ten Alps TV group) will produce the documentary as part of BBC3’s new line-up of factual and current affairs programmes.
