“The Client List” is coming to Lifetime, a new scripted series based on the 2010 made-for-TV movie of the same name. Jennifer Love Hewitt reprises her Golden Globe-nominated role from the film in the new series – Riley Parks, a single mother who unwittingly falls into a life of service (and not the waitressing kind).

In the above preview, Hewitt describes Riley as “a mother of two who has recently been left by her husband – Keeping the family afloat, paying off her mortgage and being a good mom is her number one priority.”

“Riley is going through a very rough time,” says co-star Cybill Shepherd, who plays Riley’s mother. “She lost her job, she’s got to support eveybody and she’s got to go back to do some … a little unusual work.”

“She’s trying to make ends meet and on top of it all, she’s got this deep, dark secret. She’s leading this double life,” says Colin Egglesfield, who plays Riley’s brother-in-law.

“The Client List” premieres Sunday, April 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. Are you excited? We think it could be a lot of fun.
