'The Client List' Cancelled By Lifetime After Two Seasons

The Jennifer Love-Hewitt drama The Client List has been axed by Lifetime after just two series, with the network deciding to wrap the show after lengthy talks with the star and executive producer Love-Hewitt. After finishing its second season in June this year, Sony Pictures TV and Love-Hewitt have been in negations over the series' future, but as the Hollywood Reporter confirmed this week, neither could come to an agreement that would secure its future.

The show, which followed single mother Riley Parks (Hewitt) as she attempted to balance her personal life with her unorthodox professional life as as a massage therapist, looked on course to return for another season at least, however the talks between its star/executive producer and the network executives failed to result in a solution to suit both parties. As stated by THR, Hewitt wanted a change in direction for the show, one that saw her fiancée and co-star Brian Hallisay be given a larger role in the show, however the Sony bosses did not share this creative view.

Apparently, Hewitt - who is pregnant with Hallisay's child - wanted to place more emphasis on the relationship between herself and Hallisay's character, who was introduced in a recurring role in the first season before eventually being moved up to a regular spot. It is also believed that Hewitt wanted to make her real-life pregnancy a more prominent storyline in the show, which also failed to gel with the Sony bosses. Lifetime have yet to comment on the show's axing.

The Client List initially started life as a TV movie and provided a considerable audience boom for the network when it aired in 2010, bringing in approximately 3.9 million viewers. The series initially saw similar success at the start of the first season, but those numbers dropped considerably by the end of the second season, pulling in approximately 2.1 million viewers by the end of its run.
