'The Client List' Finds a Best Friend for Jennifer Love Hewitt
Lifetime has found a BFF for Jennifer Love Hewitt on The Client List.
October Road's Rebecca Field will play Lacey, Riley's (Hewitt) best friend since high school who is on hand to lend moral support when Riley's husband walks out, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The female-skewing cable network ordered The Client List to series in August, with Hewitt reprising her role as a housewife in a conservative Texas town who takes a job at a day spa to make ends meet after her husband leaves her.
She quickly realizes that her colleagues at the parlor are prostitutes who service prominent members of society and, in an effort to keep her home out of foreclosure, turns to prostitution.
Field (Hawthorne, Mike & Molly) played bartender Janet Edith Meadows on Season 2 of ABC's local-boy-comes-home drama October Road. Repped by Greene & Associates and manager Holly Lebed, her credits also include Universal's upcoming feature American Reunion.
