So much baby daddy drama. According to Deadline, the renewal of Jennifer Love Hewitt’sThe 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.
