Jennifer Love Hewitt and the Shaw-shank redemption

- June 7th, 2012

Jennifer Love Hewitt, we free you from the prison of Canadian broadcast uncertainty.

We have confirmed with multiple sources that Hewitt’s TV series The Client List will, in fact, be airing on Shaw Media’s new Lifetime channel across Canada this fall.

Last week Shaw announced it was going to rebrand one of its existing channels as Lifetime, through an agreement with the U.S. network of the same name. While it was assumed The Client List would be part of that package, the next day there were indications that Bell Media had plucked Canadian rights to that specific series.

Now, as we suggested in a Tweet last week, given that we’ve seen The Client List, the notion that two large Canadian media companies would be in essence fighting over it was not without its humour. Let’s just say the initial gallery art for The Client List was way, way, way more provocative than the actual show, in which Hewitt plays a masseuse.

But now we can confirm, Shaw has it, case closed. We now return you to your regularly scheduled summer programming.
