Jennifer Love Hewitt is returning to the small screen in Lifetime's The Client List, extending the prostitute/mother of three character she played in the popular 2010 Lifetime movie of the same title.
"Her life is very different in the show than it was in the movie," Jennifer says about the changes from the movie to the show. "You get a more intensive look at her decision-making process going into this, why she had to go into it, how she gets there and what about it is gonna sort of keep her there."
Jennifer's sexy ads for the risqué show have already created a lot of buzz, and she shares that playing such a sexual role has in fact "empowered" her.
"It does sort of, in your own sexuality kind of, everyday as Riley sort of discovers her sexuality, I unwrap a new piece of mine in playing this. I mean, I have to be very brave. I'm definitely image-wise doing things that I haven't done before."
And just how far will the new show go?
"I'm in a lot of lingerie. I definitely am massaging men everyday here at work, and doing it in different ways every episode," Jennifer says candidly. "Sometimes it's in costume, sometimes it's in the way I'm touching them, sometimes it's what room I'm in. You know, it's all very different so I've definitely had to get more comfortable and brave."
Steamy enough for you?

The Client List premieres this Sunday, April 8 at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
