|Lindsay Lohan in "Liz & Dick"|
The 26-year-old actress is reportedly hoping to get her career back on track by proving her talent on her own sitcom after she received mixed reviews for her latest movie 'Liz & Dick'.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com that Lindsay was advised to try her hand at a comedy TV series by her close friend Charlie Sheen, who also allegedly helped her pay back her debts recently.
The insider said: "Lindsay has asked her manager and agent to look into getting her her own television sitcom.
"Lindsay feels that the small screen would be a great way for her to revitalize her acting career and that a comedy would be the best bet. Lindsay feels most comfortable doing comedy and it was Charlie Sheen that told her she should do it. Charlie told Lindsay that it was an easy way to make very good money and help her to get her movie career back on track. Lindsay is loving the idea of having her own sitcom and would love to play someone in a story based on her crazy life."
The former 'Two And A Half Men' star has been helping the troubled actress a lot recently according to reports.
He is also said to have sent her a cheque for $100,000 to cover almost half of her hefty tax bill after they bonded during filming 'Scary Movie 5' together in September.
Meanwhile, Lindsay's estranged father Michael Lohan has defended her against critics of her performance in her TV movie about Elizabeth Taylor, which aired in the US yesterday (25.11.12).
Writing on his twitter account, he said: "They know nothing about @lindsaylohan talent! She has more talent in her pinky then all of them together.
"You proved the critics wrong @LindsayLohan you are one of the best, so gifted, so amazing! Now apply it ALL! God bless you! And our family!"
