There has already been some drama around the set of Liz & Dick including Labor Union investigations into reported cases of exhaustion by cast and crew members. This came after paramedics were called to the hotel room of Lindsay Lohan on Friday, after she was found unresponsive. Lohan had suffered exhaustion and dehydration and blamed the “grueling schedule” of the Liz & Dick production.
