So much baby daddy drama. According to Deadline, the renewal of Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Client List, for a third season, is being held up over how to best handle Hewitt’s real life pregnancy on the show. Reportedly, Hewitt wants Brian Hallisay’s character Kyle Parks to be the baby daddy, but the showrunner wants Colin Egglesfield’s (ex-Joshua Madden, All My Children) Evan Parks to be the tike’s onscreen father.
I hear a major sticking point has been demands from Hewitt, who serves as an executive producer on the series, about the storyline for Season 3. I hear Hewitt has asked that Brian Hallisay, her real-life fiance and father of her baby, also play her character Riley’s baby daddy on the show in a major story arc next season. I hear that is at odds with the ideas from the Client List showrunner, who I hear pitched the series’ male lead Colin Egglesfield, and the network brass, who I hear have not settled on a character as they are looking to keep their options open but are not willing to go with Hallisay, who I hear doesn’t have wide support there.
Get all the details at Deadline.
And baby makes three! Jennifer Love Hewitt and her The Client List co-star Brian Hallisay have announced a new baby on the way and an engagement. US Weekly has all the details in their latest issue, from the ring to the baby news.
"We're so thrilled and happy to start a family," the costars told Us in a statement.
Is Lifetime going edgier? Looks that way. A+E President of Entertainment and Media Nancy Debuc believes the soapy cable channel needs to generate more watercooler buzz, like it has with Liz & Dick, The Client List and Steel Magnolias, reports Deadline. Said Debuc:
“There’s no question, Lifetime must evolve. It’s a work in progress right now." READ MORE
