Jennifer Love Hewitt’s ‘The Client List’ Renewed; Gratuitous Cleavage for Everyone!
We should make it clear that we have in no capacity watched any episodes of Jennifer Love Hewitt‘s original Lifetime series ‘The Client List,’ nor the TV movie that preceded it, but in an age where the Internet is King, the endless stream of cleavage-filled GIFs provide all the evidence we’ll ever need to support J. Love getting renewed for a second season.
The Hollywood Reporter announces that Lifetime original series ‘The Client List’ has officially received a pickup for a second season, as an added bonus to consist of 15 episodes rather than the first season’s 10. The hour-long series debuted in early April to the tune of an average 2.8 million total viewers, the network’s most-watched series debut since 2009′s ‘Drop Dead Diva.’
“’The Client List’ represents everything we want to be: fresh, exciting and original with attitude,” says Lifetime Networks president and general manager Nancy Dubuc. “We love Jennifer and this series and are equally thrilled that they have connected with our audience, especially as we express our new brand, ‘Your Life. Your Time.’ ”
For those who haven’t kept up with the Lifetime series, Jennifer Love Hewitt stars as single mother Riley Parks, a masseuse at “The Rub of Sugar Land,” a day spa in Texas that offers as People puts it, “a little more than standard massage therapy.” The show originated as a Lifetime TV movie, before spinning off into its own series, and attracting a good deal of attention not only for its content, but for Lifetime’s backpedaling efforts to town down their more risqué ad campaign.
Love Hewitt expressed her own excitement on her Twitter page, saying:
I’m so excited right now I’m crying!!! The Client List just got picked up for season 2!!! Thank you lifetime! Thank you all for watching!!!
