The Jennifer Love Hewitt-starrer will bow on Sept. 2 at 10 p.m., after the debut of Drop Dead Diva at 9 p.m.

Ahead of its Aug. 27 launch, Shaw Media is unveiling its lineup for Lifetime Canada.

The latest addition is The Client List (pictured), the Jennifer Love Hewitt-starring drama to debut on September 2 at 10 p.m., right after the premiere of Drop Dead Diva at 9 p.m.

In The Client List, Hewitt stars as Riley, a single mother living in a small Texas town who works in a massage parlour to make ends meet.

The drama joins a Lifetime Canada lineup that also includes Dance Moms, Dance Mom: Miami, The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet and the original movies Liz & Dick, Ring of Fire and Steel Magnolias.

At launch, Lifetime will be available on a three-month free preview in around 10 million Canadian homes.
