Before 'Labor Pains' even gets a screening time in U.S. theaters, the movie about fake pregnancy will hit the TV screen first.

Apparently the TBD release date of Lindsay Lohan's "Labor Pains" means something. The movie was meant to hit the big screen in U.S. later this year but now it is sent straight to cable TV, a source from the production house Nu Image/Millenium Films has confirmed to Access Hollywood.

The movie directed by Lara Shapiro will air on ABC Family in July and come in DVD a month later. However, the movie is still in schedule to hit the theaters internationally although no date has been set yet.

In the movie, Lindsay Lohan plays Thea, a young woman who fakes a pregnancy to keep her in employment and is forced to lie for nine straight months. It puts "American Idol" finalist Kevin Covais as her co-worker, Chris Parnell as her nasty boss and Cheryl Hines as her supportive friend. The trailer can be seen via our video gallery.

I wanted to see this film in theaters and now its going to be on cable. You know she is trying to get her life together and this could have opennned her up to do more comedic roles on screen. its going to be like watching secret life of an american teen but whith a higher budget. It will be great to see but not the right film to put straight to tv.

So sad. I really hope she gets her stuff together, because she is talented and it would be a waste for her to waste that talent. She's on the verge of doing made-for-TV movies. She better be careful not to end up as a washed-up former child star who's a cast member on The Surreal Life.
