Lifetime's newest show "The Client List" is described as: a Texas housewife "Riley Parks" (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who, after being deserted by her husband, is left in serious financial straits and takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa in a neighboring town. But when she realizes the business in part also provides other services, Riley must make the difficult decision whether or not to embrace an opportunity for her to resolve her financial hardships like some of the other women in the spa do. The series will follow Riley as she delicately balances a moral conflict between two starkly different lives -- one as a single mother in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family, or the other as a savvy and ambitious businesswoman working with a raucous, sexy and unpredictable group of women.
So in other words, a mom is employed at a massage parlor that gives happy endings. The trailer on their website shows Hewitt barely dressed when a man drops his towel and then states, "If you are on her list, you want to get off." There are plans for it to premiere in April unless OMM does something about it. If the promo for this program is too appalling to watch, then the show will be completely unsuitable for television.
Networks like Lifetime continue to produce offensive programs, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.
Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Lifetime and parent company A&E Television Networks, LLC to drop all plans to air the highly sexual program "The Client List."
Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the Lifetime network in protest of this soft porn they call entertainment.
