'Client List' producers promise big change

LifetimeLifetime's The Client List is an odd show. The series airs on a network that historically gears its programming towards women; however, series star Jennifer Love Hewitt (who plays Riley Parks) is often in various states of undress on the program and providing massages to male clients that end in a fashion that male viewers probably appreciate more than female viewers do. In fact, a recent post on popular website Aint it Cool News refered to the show as the "Jennifer Love Hewitt Handjob Hour."

Regardless of how it gets there, the end result is a success. Lifetime gets good ratings out of the series, which focuses on Parks, a mother of two, doing what she can to get by. 

The producers of the show say that tonight's episode changes everthing for Riley heading forward.

“The character changes forever,” said executive producer Ed Decter. While details are not known of what will happen, what is known is that with her husband Kyle (Brian Hallisay) still behind bars, a client played by Josh Hopkins offers Parks $50,000 for a night of sex. Without reading too much into anything, her turning that down would not really change her forever, would it?

"We were wondering what if Riley got really, really desperate with money and some crises happened to her. Then we wanted to do what we call our Indecent Proposalepisode. What if somebody offered you a lot of money? The big debate will be whether she’ll go through with it or whether she won’t go through with it, Decter added.

"The premise of the show is a woman living a double life and one of the central themes of the show is illicit sex. One of the things we said was how far would someone go or not go? Again, we don’t know whether she’ll go through with the indecent proposal or whether she won’t," he continued.

What do you think will happen?

"Lifetime's The Client List is an odd show. The series airs on a network that historically gears its programming towards men; however, series star Jennifer Love Hewitt..." i think it was meant to say women. I tried to watch it a few times i liked vanilla JLH milfshake but its just sooooo boring.
