Jennifer Love Hewitt's TV show 'The Client List' has been cancelled amidst a creative standoff.

The actress' raunchy series - which sees her play a masseuse who provides her clients extra services in order to make ends meet - has been axed after two seasons by US channel Lifetime following claims the star reportedly clashed with producers over who would be the father of her pregnant character Riley's child.

Jennifer, who is an executive producer on the series, is pregnant in real life with her co-star and fiancé Brian Hallisay's baby and was eager for his character - who is her on-screen husband - to father the child.

Show bosses were less than impressed with the suggestion and Lifetime refrained from renewing the show, which wrapped its second season in June, until the creative dispute was settled.

According to Deadline, the differences became ''too much'' for the channel and producer Sony Pictures TV, and both sides came to a ''mutual decision'' to end the series.

The 34-year-old actress - who is due to give birth in December - got engaged to Brian, 35, in June after 15 months of dating.

The actor popped the question during a romantic vacation to Europe.
