Premiering day-and-date with Lifetime® in the U.S., the pulse-racing second season debuts on Sunday, March 10 at 10pm ET/PT. Leading up to the season two premiere is a marathon of The Client List's entire first season beginning same day at 12pm ET/PT. The inaugural season of The Client List engrossed audiences this past fall on Lifetime® and during its run was the number one dramatic series across all specialty television in the Sunday 10pm time period (W 25-54).**Following last season's cliffhanger finale, more drama and new threats await Riley Parks (Jennifer Love Hewitt) in the equally steamy second season of The Client List. After being deserted by her husband and left alone in financial despair, the Texas single mother of two accepts a larger role at The Rub, the seemingly traditional spa that offers clients on the list special "extras," adding further obstacles to her already difficult double life. But it's the sudden return of her estranged husband Kyle (Brian Hallisay) that proves to be especially challenging for Riley as her feelings for brother-in-law Evan (Colin Egglesfield) finally come to a boil. Caught with her back against the wall, trust becomes an overwhelming issue for Riley as everyone, including those closest to her, seem to be hiding something.Also starring in The Client List are Golden Globe®winner Cybill Shepherd (Cybill) as Riley's mother "Linette," Emmy® Award-winning actress Loretta Devine (Grey's Anatomy) as The Rub's owner "Georgia" and Rebecca Field (American Reunion) as best friend Lacey.Based on Lifetime®'s original movie of the same name, The Client List is executive produced by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Dannielle Thomas, Howard Braunstein, Ed Decter, John J. Strauss, Michael Reisz and Allan Arkush, with Fedora Films and Jaffe/Braunstein producing in association with Sony Pictures Television. Lifetime® has ordered 15 episodes of The Client List, up from last season's 10 episode order.Source:*BBM Canada PPM Data, Aug 27, 2012- Jan 20, 2013**BBM Canada PPM Data, Aug 27- Dec 30, 2012, (W25-54)SOCIAL MEDIA LINKSWebsite: www.mylifetimetv.caFacebook: facebook.com/lifetimetvcaTwitter: @lifetimetvcaLifetime is a Shaw Media Network.About Shaw Communications Inc.
