(Newser) – Though they should have known what they were in for the moment they hired her, the producers of Lindsay Lohan's upcoming Lifetime movie are reportedly "hysterical" over the actress' recent car crash and exhaustion incident. Sources tell TMZ the producers are particularly worried they may lose their insurance over the car crash, or that Lindsay could face legal issues for lying to police … or that she could simply get into yet more trouble of some other sort, whether car-related or nightclub-related.

They're probably also not too happy that LiLo's explanation for her exhaustion ("working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting," she tweeted) ended up getting the working conditions on the set investigated by two Hollywood unions. But Perez Hilton notes that some crew members say Lohan was exaggerating, and absolutely "did not work 85 hours in four days." TMZ points out that this is quite a bit of publicity, however, and that Lifetime could end up quite happy if it boosts the ratings for Liz & Dick.
