‘Damages’ Will Live On at DirecTV’s 101 Network

DirecTV has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television to acquire Damages from FX. Under the terms of the pact, DirecTV’s 101 network will air two additional seasons of the drama—each consisting of 10 episodes—beginning in 2011.

The series revolves around the brilliant, yet ruthless lawyer, Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), her protégée, 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.

Unlike DirecTV’s arrangement with NBC for Friday Night Lights, Damages will only air on DirecTV.

“We’re excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television as we breathe new life into this outstanding drama,” said Patty Ishimoto, general manager of The 101 Network and vice president of entertainment for DirecTV. “It’s a win for our customers because only they will be able to see these new episodes and another great step forward for DirecTV as we continue to build our growing portfolio of exclusive, award winning programming.“
