Lindsay Lohan is set to star in a new British sitcom titled "Sick Note" alongside "Harry Potter" star Rupert Grint and "Paul" actor Nick Frost.

Sky 1 announced the casting of the series, which is currently shooting in the United Kingdom, on its website Monday. The actress also took to Instagram to share a picture from set in which she sports a bob. She captioned the photo, "Back on set of my new TV show #SickNote."

"Sick Note" follows the story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and a dead-end insurance job. Daniel is then wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor (Frost). Instead of fixing the mistake, the doctor convinces Daniel to hide the truth from his colleagues, friends and family.
