OPEN FOR BUSINESS...

LIFETIME AND JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT TO SHARE "THE CLIENT LIST" WITH VIEWERS ON APRIL 8

All-New Drama Based on Hit Movie Executive Produced by Hewitt also Stars Cybill Shepherd, Loretta Devine and Colin Egglesfield

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 21, 2012) - The Client List, Lifetime's new original drama starring and executive produced by Golden Globe(R) Award nominee Jennifer Love Hewitt, will officially open for business when it premieres on Sunday, April 8, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Golden Globe winner Cybill Shepherd (Cybill), Emmy(R) Award-winning actress Loretta Devine (Grey's Anatomy) and Colin Egglesfield (Something Borrowed) also star. Based on the network's hit 2010 original movie, Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of The Client List.

The Client List is about Texas housewife "Riley Parks" (Hewitt), who, after being deserted by her husband, is left in serious financial straits and takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa in a neighboring town. But when she realizes some of her co-workers also provide other services, Riley must make the difficult decision whether or not to embrace an opportunity for her to resolve her financial hardships. The series will follow Riley as she delicately balances a moral conflict between two starkly different lives -- one as a single mother in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family and the other as a savvy and ambitious businesswoman working with a raucous, sexy and unpredictable group of women. As Riley becomes more involved, she struggles while working in secrecy knowing her family and friends would disapprove of her decision. Shepherd stars as "Linette," Riley's mother; Devine plays "Georgia," the spa's feisty and disorganized owner; and Egglesfield portrays Riley's brother-in-law "Evan."

The Client List is executive produced by Hewitt, Dannielle Thomas (The Client List), Howard Braunstein (The Client List, The Informant!), Jordan Budde (GCB, 90210) and Efrem Seeger (Queer as Folk, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), with Fedora Films and Jaffe/Braunstein producing, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

In its July 2010 world premiere, the Lifetime Original Movie The Client List, for which Hewitt received a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television category, averaged 3.9 million Total Viewers. The movie was produced by Fedora Films and Jaffe- Braunstein Entertainment.
