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.
