The Client List is about Texas housewife “Riley Parks” (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who, after being deserted by her husband, is left in deep financial straits and takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa in a neighboring town. When Riley realizes massages aren’t the only services on the menu, she sees it as an opportunity for her to relieve her financial hardships. The series will follow Riley as she delicately balances two starkly different lives — one as a single mother 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. Cybill Shepherd stars as “Linette,” Riley’s mother, Loretta Devine plays “Georgia,” the parlor’s feisty and disorganized owner, and Colin Egglesfield portrays Riley’s brother-in-law “Evan.”
The Client List is executive produced by Hewitt, Dannielle Thomas (The Client List), Howard Braunstein (The Client List, The Informant!), Jordan Budde (GCB, 90210) and Efrem Seeger (Queer as Folk, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), with Fedora Films and Jaffe/Braunstein producing, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
