Jennifer Love Hewitt
Note: Various directors work different episodes during the season. In television shows composed of individual episodes, the television director’s role differs from that of a film director in that he or she may work only on some television episodes as opposed to the director of an entire film production. In episodic television productions, the major creative control resides with a producer of the show. The television producer with creative control is called the showrunner (in this case Jennifer Love Hewitt).

Riley Parks (Jennifer Love Hewitt), is forced to work in a day spa in a local Texas town after being left in financial debt when her husband abandons her and her children. She quickly realizes that the spa gives much more than massages, but must partner with the parlor’s owner (Loretta Devine) in order to keep food on the table. While helping to run the business, she struggles to discreetly balance two lives – one as a single mother in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family and the other as a savvy and ambitious businesswoman working with a raucous, sexy and unpredictable group of women. As Riley becomes more involved, she struggles while working in secrecy knowing her family and friends would disapprove of her decision.
