Jennifer Love Hewitt is back and simply irresistible! Check out her new music video “I’m A Woman” produced by Randy Jackson. Tune in for an all new season of The Client List March 10th at 10/9c on Lifetime to see her as Riley Parks.
Lifetime’s hit drama series The Client List, starring and executive produced by Golden Globe® Award nominee Jennifer Love Hewitt, will return for its long-awaited second season on Sunday, March 10, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Leading up to The Client List’s return, Lifetime will air mini-marathons of the series’ first season on Sunday, March 3, and Sunday, the 10th. Last year The Client List propelled Lifetime to number one in the Sunday 10:00pm time period among Women 18+.
After last season’s cliffhanger finale, season two of The Client List promises to be no easier for Riley Parks (Hewitt) at home or at work. The Texas single mother of two who, after being deserted by her husband and left in financial straits, took a job at a seemingly traditional day spa only to learn that sexual favors are being offered there on the side. After her estranged husband “Kyle” (Brian Hallisay) returns, for better or for worse, Riley must walk the fine line between her anger and love for him and the romantic feelings she has for her brother-in-law “Evan” (Colin Egglesfield). Riley also takes a larger role at the spa, resulting in added power, responsibility and burden, further complicating her life. New threats abound this season and trust becomes an overwhelming issue for Riley as everyone, even those she believes she can count on the most, seems to be hiding their own secret. Also starring in The Client List are Golden Globe winner Cybill Shepherd as Riley’s mother “Linette” and Emmy® Award-winning actress Loretta Devine as The Rub of Sugarland’s owner “Georgia.”
Based on the network’s hit 2010 original movie, The Client List is executive produced by Hewitt, Dannielle Thomas (The Client List), Howard Braunstein (The Client List, The Informant!), Ed Decter (In Plain Sight, There’s Something About Mary), John J. Strauss (In Plain Sight, There’s Something About Mary), Michael Reisz (In Plain Sight, Boston Legal) and Allan Arkush (Heroes, Crossing Jordan), who also serves as director, with Fedora Films and Jaffe/Braunstein producing, in association with Sony Pictures Television. It was developed by Jordan Budde. Lifetime has ordered 15 episodes of The Client List, up from last season’s ten episode order.
Season one of The Client List delivered Lifetime’s strongest freshman season for an original series since 2009 among Total Viewers, Adults 25-54 and Women 25-54. Among Adults 18-49 and Women 18-49, it was Lifetime’s best freshman season since Army Wives in 2007.
Lifetime is looking for a new Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.
The female-skewing cable network is teaming with Jennifer Love Hewitt to develop Darcy’s Town, a modern-day retelling of Jane Austen’s literary classic Pride and Prejudice.
The Lifetime drama takes place in a small Virginia town and is being penned by Sheryl Anderson (Charmed), exec produced by Hewitt and hails from the actress-producer’s Fedora Films and Cineflix. Fedora’s head of development and production Jeanie Bradley brought the project to Lifetime.
Pride and Prejudice, first published in 1813, is set in 19th century England and revolves around the Bennet family and Elizabeth’s love affair with Mr. Darcy. Lifetime’s Darcy’s Town marks the second Austen reimagining this development season. Boardwalk Empire’s Margaret Nagle has set up a modern Sense and Sensibility at CBS and revolves around three devoted sisters whose lives are upended when the father who abandoned them as children returns.
For The Client List star Hewitt, the project marks her latest collaboration with Lifetime after inking a first-look development deal with the actress’ Fedora Films. Under the pact, the former Party of Five star is also developing an adaptation of her book, The Day I Shot Cupid, among other projects for the cabler.
Lifetime renewed The Client List for a 15-episode second season in May.
Hewitt is repped by WME, Untitled and Hirsch Wallerstein; Anderson is with The Cartel.
In 2010 the Lifetime channel aired a telefilm called The Client List, based on a real-life 2004 Texas prostitution scandal, and early in 2011 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released that production on DVD. The TV movie and the DVD were well received, so Lifetime decided to move forward with turning the story into a weekly TV series…but with significant changes.
The network, the show title, the general premise, the star (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and the actress playing the main character’s mother (Cybill Shepherd) were all the same. But the rest of the cast changed, as did the name of all the characters…including the characters played by Hewitt and Shepherd! But in April 2012, Lifetime debuted broadcasts for their revamped version of the story with The Client List – The Complete 1st Season, and it’s done well enough to be renewed for a second season next year…and for a DVD to be planned as well! Sony hasn’t officially announced the 3-disc set as of this writing, so we don’t have a date or all the details yet. But the cost is $45.99 SRP, and you can pre-order it from Amazon.com.
Lifetime has put in development Mrs. G’s Bigger Love, an original movie project executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Written by Julie Golden, the film is based on an entry in Heather Gatticio’s blog Derfwad Manor. In the post, Gatticio, a happily married mother of two, muses hypothetically about becoming a female polygamist, marrying the likes of George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem.
The Lifetime project follows a bored Seattle housewife’s fictional day-in-the-the-life-of-a-female-polygamist blog. When the blog attracts the attention of a book agent and she realizes the fame, money and validation she so craved during her bored and frustrated housewife existence, she finds herself forced to cover up her “normal” life in order to perpetuate the myth.
Hewitt executive produces with Jeanie Bradley, executive at her Fedora Films. Mrs. G.’s Bigger Love stems from Fedora’s first-look deal with Lifetime. It joins a drama Hewitt has in the works at the cable network, an adaptation of her book The Day I Shot Cupid. Golden is repped by APA.
