Stepping out as a new member of the network's family, Lindsay Lohan took to Lincoln Center in New York City for the A&E 2012 Upfront on Wednesday (May 9).
The "Georgia Rule" starlet looked stunning in an intricately designed black and gold mini dress as she made the appearance after being signed to portray Elizabeth Taylor in a new Lifetime original movie.
During the A&E Networks Upfront, the company's president and CEO, Abbe Raven, made headlines after taking a shot at other competing TV stations.
Referencing many copy-cat shows similar to A&E's offerings, Raven stated, “Our integrity and respect for the creative community does not allow us to even think of copying other networks’ shows."
She added, "We have too much reverence for our brands to become a clone of other networks. We do not want the 25th generation of the Pawn and Storage shows like TLC, Tru or Discovery. We want to stick to what we do best – creating the original.”
