The wait for the next Jennifer Love Hewitt project is over! Lifetime announced today that the ex-Ghost Whisperer will star in and executive produce The Client List, about a financially-strapped Texas housewife who runs a lively, um, day spa after she’s abandoned by her husband.

The series is based on the network’s original movie of the same name that aired last year.

Lifetime ordered 10 episodes of the new series, which will bow next year.  The network also closed a development deal with Hewitt’s production company Fedora Films, which includes her directing a future movie for the network.

    Good to see her back in a regular role, assuming they’ll be changing the movie’s plot a bit to fit a show better but should be fun.

      from possilbly staring on L&A SVU to Lifetime…some1 needs a new agent.

      • stu

        L&O

      • Wes

        She’s going to be stuck with these awful roles until she finally shows her two greatest talents (both about 5 feet off the ground).

  • MM

    I love JLH! She genuinely seems like such a great gal and a hard worker. I actually just bought this movie and loved it. Can’t wait!

    • Briony

      She’s was brilliant on Hot in Cleveland. Didn’t realize she was such a comedic actress. Would love to see her in a sitcom.

  • AustiNights

    Love Love. She is so awesome. I have enjoyed watching her career blossom since her Party of Five days. This looks like a really good project for her coming to Lifetime. She’s definitely comedic. I loved her in the Jackie Chan movie a few years back. Loves me a Texas gal!

    • Jennifer Love Hewitt will star in Lifetime series…

      The thought she was gonna become a movie star after I Know What You Did Last Summer *sigh*

      (Ditto Nev Campbell).

      • CRedd

        I’m sure Sister Act 2 was her first movie. But excited! The movie was amazing the series sounds promising.

    • BLT

      I just saw The Tuxedo last night! I had forgotten she co-starred in it. She was funny.

  • Tom

    WIth that ample bosom she will always have work.

    • Alyssa

      @Tom, wow how shallow of you. I have an ample bust and it doesnt get me any more of anything. Guys really need to learn that talking about skinny women and big boobs is a huge turn off.

      Women in reality come in all shapes and cup sizes. IF you really want her, see her for who she is as a person. IM SO SICK OF HEARING about BIG BOOBS and BODIES. Yes its Hollywood but its not always been this bad.

      • retort

        Read the boards some more around here. Sure, more than a few guys will make a comment about someone being hot. The women here drool so much over topless guy pictures the text in their posts is practically running down the computer screen…of course its OK for women to sexualize men, but the second someone says a girl has good knockers someone complains about sexism.

        You’re on an entertainment website. If you are looking for more intelectually stimulating comments, attend a Mensa meeting…

      • Alyssa

        Okay that wasnt my point…but whatever. I am on these boards all the time. How many times do you see men as the focal point of magazines and body issues? just a question- I never said women dont act shallow and like guys for their hot bods. I have a crush on one of J.Loves ex Boyfriends from a long time ago( BMW’s Will Friedle). DO i know him? NO…do I think he’s hot and imagine what his goods look like? YES. But guys have this gift where you dont give a crap what people say most of the time. Women are touchy about every subject under the sun thats why more end up bulimic and anorexic..

      • Fred

        Gals really need to learn that their complaining about guys liking skinny women and big boobs is a huge turn off. “Hope this Helps.”

  • Solange

    I like JLH so I’ll watch it! :)

  • annie

    Something about her I just don’t like! Really don’t know why. I was glad that her other show was cancelled though.

    • Gordon

      You don’t like her because you are most likely a disgusting, fat,12 sandwich eating slob.You should be locked in a portable toilet and set on fire.

      • sammy

        Wow Gordon! Wonder what you look like? You should really deal with that anger issue. Oh, and I’d stay out of portable toilets if I were you!

      • Alyssa

        classy….not everyone has to like J.Love. If your going to stereotype, your most likely a pig who looks at /wants women for their boobs and butts.

      • stu

        take ur meds Gordy!

      • annie

        From that comment I would say your wife left you and the only boobs you get to see are on tv! lol Your wife is a smart woman!!!

    • Alyssa

      I feel the same way, I dont know what it is…she seems fakey and immature. I mean we all have our dream wedding picked out, but I dont think I would ever go as far as – tell my long term boyfriend that I have engagement rings picked out, or baby names picked out ( though I do have certain names I like- you just cross that bridge when you get there). And with rings you can always pick out the wedding bands together, the engagement ring is his choice and show of affection.

    • Brian

      Idiot

  • kate middleton

    Cannot wait. That movie was amazing.

    Her husband didn’t abandon her in the movie, so it will be interesting to see how they change the plot.

  • Nicole

    I loved the movie. I haven’t found a JLH movie or show I didn’t like.

    • angel

      I love her too….but there is one movie that totally failed her..garfield.

  • jinx

    I love JLH…she is awesome. Oh and pretty faces and big boobs DO get you far in life….wake up and smell reality.

    • BLT

      Well, I’d hope actual acting talent would be a factor in career longevity, as much or more so than T&A.

  • TonyS.

    Oh man the things I would do to her.

  • MikeAM1978

    Oh, Jen, I love you, but why couldn’t you partner with a network that’s worth watching?

  • mouse

    I have always loved JLH, she seems like a very nice person as well as an interesting actress. I have seen her in just about everything she’s done and loved her in all of it! Good luck to you Jennifer!

  • Jason

    She’s a beautiful & talented actress. I hope this is a success for her.

  • Frank

    Always liked Jennifer LH, and am glad to see her career moving along on good track. Has one of the most infectious smiles in the world.

    • Toot

      Yeah, it’s her smile that’s gotten her this far.

      • Justsayin

        She emotes! Can bring up a tear more touching than any on the silver screen.

    • Brian

      Love this gal! Happy for her new show!

  • Alyssa

    Since she likes lifetime and ” Client List” was good. I was hoping she could star as that scum-bag mother Casey Anthony in a movie about all that crap that took place. But I heard Anthony’s leech sucking lawyers would not allow any such thing. Love looks alot like her, and you can bet alot of people would watch that…like the Natalie Holloway, Amanda Knox stories.
