Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Client List has scored something few Lifetime original movies ever do: a series pickup!
The female-centric network has placed a 10-episode order for a drama series based on last year’s flick to premiere in 2012.
Hewitt will both reprise her Client List role — which earned the actress a Golden Globe nomination — and serve as executive producer of the project. Additionally, Lifetime has inked a development deal with Hewitt’s production company Fedora Films.
Client List tells the scandalous story of a strapped-for-cash housewife who runs a prostitution ring day spa after her husband abandons her.
It was actually pretty good for a Lifetime movie, but how it is going to work as a series?
