Two of Hollywood's largest unions said they were investigating working conditions on the production of Lindsay Lohan's TV movie "Liz & Dick."
"We have had union representatives on the set since last Friday and will continue to monitor the hours and working conditions there," said Mike Miller, motion picture and television director for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, which represents technical workers on films and TV shows. "We take very seriously the safety and well-being of our crews and are dedicated to seeing that they are protected from hazardous working conditions."
IATSE's statement comes in the wake of reports that some crew members were treated for exhaustion and dehydration after working long hours on the Lifetime movie, about the relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
Lohan, who plays Taylor, was treated last week by paramedics for exhaustion and dehydration and later described her experiences on Twitter: "Note to self... After working 85hours in 4days, and being up all night shooting, be very aware that you might pass out from exhaustion & . 7 paramedics MIGHT show up."
