Lifetime Cancels ‘The Client List’ After 2 Seasons


Lifetime Cancels ‘The Client List’ After 2 Seasons


Well, that’s an official wrap on Lifetime’s ‘The Client List.’ The network has chosen to cancel the series after two seasons.

The risque drama starring Jennifer Love Hewitt as leading lady Riley Parks focused on Parks as a single mother (before her husband, played by Brian Hallisay, returned home) dealing with life, her two kids and the ordeal of being left by her husband. Eventually, Parks turned to working as a masseuse at The Rub, but she did more than give traditional massages. Let’s just say her clients left happier than when they arrived.

According to Deadline, the cancellation was “a mutual decision between the network and producer Sony Pictures TV.” Yes, the show struggled to gain decent ratings during its second season, but Deadline is reporting the main reason for the show’s axe is due to “talent-related” issues.

Last June, it was made known that Lifetime and Sony TV were at a “creative standoff’ with Hewitt over her storylines for the third season (if it were picked up). As most know, Hewitt, who was also an executive producer on the show, is pregnant and engaged in real-life to Hallisay aka the actor who played her hubby on the series. Reportedly, Hewitt wanted Hallisay to also play Riley’s baby daddy on ‘The Client List.’ Deadline is reporting that the above issues led to creative differences and “became too much for Lifetime and Sony TV, leading to today’s formal cancellation.”

The series also starred Loretta Devine, Colin Egglesfield, Rebecca Field, Cybill Shepherd, Alicia Lagano and Greg Grunberg.

I would think given the seemingly low ratings Hewitt would have been better keeping her head down and carrying on with the show.

Sounds like another case of the star getting too big of a head for her own good. I'm sure Hewitt still has plenty of Ghost Whisperer money left, but I don't see how getting her show canceled is preferable to getting over herself and letting the writers write the storylines.
