Damages is an American television drama series created by the writing and production trio of Daniel Zelman and brothers Glenn and Todd A. Kessler (collectively known as KZK). It is broadcast in the United States on the DirecTV channel Audience Network after originally airing on FX and is produced by the creators' own production company, KZK Productions. It premiered on July 24, 2007.
The series revolves around the brilliant, ruthless lawyer, Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), her protegee, Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne), and the law firm, Hewes & Associates (located in New York City). Each season features a major case that Hewes and her firm takes on, while also examining a chapter of the complicated relationship between Ellen and Patty. The series is also known for its depiction of the season-long cases both from the law firm's point of view and from the target's point of view. The series has attracted many stars to play characters on the side against Hewes, including Ted Danson, William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden, Martin Short, Lily Tomlin, and John Goodman. Close and first-season star Zeljko Ivanek won Emmys for their performances, while several other actors have been nominated.
Season four of the Emmy Award-winning, critically acclaimed legal thriller, DAMAGES, starring Emmy Award winner Glenn Close and Emmy Award Nominee Rose Byrne, will premiere exclusively on Wednesday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Audience Network. Season four, which marks the series' highly anticipated move to DIRECTV, focuses on the exceedingly controversial subject of private military contractors in Afghanistan, catapulting characters into a world of corruption and deceit, where nothing is as it seems and justice is served outside of the court room. DAMAGES, from Sony Pictures Television in association with FX Productions and KZK Productions, follows the turbulent lives of Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), the nation's most revered and reviled high-stakes litigator, and her bright, ambitious young protege Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne). Emmy Award Winner John Goodman and Emmy Award Nominee Dylan Baker join the cast as series regulars and, in keeping with DAMAGES' tradition of featuring what is arguably the most impressive roster guest stars of any series on television, season four will feature Chris Messina, Judd Hirsch, Fisher Stevens, Griffin Dunn, Julie White, Bailey Chase and Derek Webster in recurring roles. The show was created and is executive produced by KZK and co-executive produced by Mark A. Baker. The fourth season of DAMAGES finds Patty and Ellen embroiled in a wrongful-death suit against a private military contractor, Howard T. Erickson (John Goodman). Erickson has made a fortune supplying the U.S. Government with security forces in Afghanistan and is protected by his connections within the highest echelons of power in Washington, D.C. Chris Sanchez (Chris Messina), a decorated soldier who now works for the security firm, is drawn into the web of intrigue when Ellen and Patty set their sights on his corrupt employer. Complicating matters is Jerry Boorman (Dylan Baker), a shadowy opportunist with ties to both Erickson and the Middle East who is intimately involved in the season-long conspiracy at the heart of the lawsuit.
