Today we are talking to a tremendously talented triple-threat who has been seen by millions on screens large and small for most of her life and can now be seen weekly on Lifetime's hit dramedy series THE CLIENT LIST, the gorgeous and convivial Jennifer Love Hewitt. Discussing all aspects of her role as star and executive producer of the hit Lifetime series, now in its second season, Hewitt offers forth her candid insights into her character on the show as well as the larger issues being dealt with in the universe of THE CLIENT LIST. Also, Hewitt comments upon her impressive array of co-stars and guest stars, among them Broadway regulars Loretta Devine and Cybil Shepard, as well as clues us in on what we can expect from this Sunday's show. Most importantly, Hewitt gives us the 411 on her super-sexy and seriously impressive new music video promoting THE CLIENT LIST featuring her belting the SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE barn-burner “I'm A Woman” in showstopping - and heart-stopping - style, produced by AMERICAN IDOL's Randy Jackson and directed by famed photographer Matthew Roliston. Plus, in addition to an all access pass to THE CLIENT LIST, Hewitt opens up about her affection for performing and her plans to pursue more singing, dancing and theatre in the future, packed schedule permitting. Additionally, Hewitt offers up memories of lighting up the small screen in presence and song as part of A CHRISMAS CAROL, featuring a score by Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens, as well as working with Marc Shaiman as a pre-teen chorus member on SISTER ACT 2. All of that, reflections on what I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER and PARTY OF FIVE co-stars she would like to have appear on THE CLIENT LIST, favorite movie musicals, KIDS, INCORPORATED memories, thoughts on singing more SWEET CHARITY sometime soon (especially following last year's smashing “Big Spender” music video) - and much, much more!
