Lifetime Greenlights ‘The Client List’ Series Starring & Produced By Jennifer Love Hewitt

Nellie Andreeva

Lifetime has picked up The Client List, a new hourlong series based on the network’s 2010 movie starring and executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Hewitt is set to reprise her role and executive produce the series, which has received a 10-episode order for a 2012 launch. Additionally, Lifetime has signed a first-look development deal for both series and movies with Hewitt’s production company Fedora Films. The deal includes a directing gig for Hewitt on a future Lifetime movie.

The Client List is about a Texas housewife (Hewitt) who, after being deserted by her husband, takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa in a neighboring town but realizes that the parlor offers way more than massages and ends up partnering with the parlor’s feisty and disorganized owner to run the business. The series will follow her as she balances two starkly different lives — one as a single mom in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family and the other as a savvy and ambitious businesswoman working with a rowdy, sexy and unpredictable group of women.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Eyed For New Female Lead Of ‘SVU’ As Mariska Hargitay Closes Deal To Return, Chris Meloni Not Done

Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: Just in time for NBC’s upfront presentation on Monday, Law & Order:SVU star Mariska Hargitay has closed a new deal to return to the crime drama for its upcoming 13th season, in which she will pass on the female lead baton to a new actress. I hear Jennifer Love Hewitt is being courted for the gig, though no formal offer has been made. Meanwhile, SVU‘s leading man Christopher Meloni still has no deal for next season.

Going into the contract negotiations, Hargitay had asked to scale back her workload on the show. The producers granted her request, and she will work fewer hours at her previous salary of about $385,000 an episode ($400,000 with backend and other payments included.) For the first 13 episodes, Hargitay’s character Olivia Benson will continue to solve sex crimes alongside her partner, presumably Elliot Stabler (Meloni), pending him closing his deal. Then Benson will be promoted to a supervisor position, with a new female detective taking her place. That is the role that the producers are eying Hewitt for. Read More »

Wild Hogs director Walt Becker and Tiffany Paulsen (Nancy Drew) will be writing the script with Hewitt attached to star. The project would reunite Hewitt with Fox where she got her break as co-star on Party of Five. Read More »
