Directv May Save Damages

Any others you want them save?


Read Here

The fate of another critically acclaimed but ratings-challenged drama series may once again rest in the hands of DirecTV.
Multiple sources confirm to me exclusively that Sony is talking to DirecTVís 101 Network about partnering on a possible fourth season of Damages. The cost-sharing arrangement would be similar to the one DirecTV and NBC forged with Friday Night Lights, which means future seasons of Damages would air first on DirecTV with a second window on FX. Con't in link.

I'm not surprised that they want to save it. However, this has to be one of the hardest TV shows to write for and I can't imagine how they could come up with a fresh 4th season even though Glenn Close and Rose Byrne are contracted to do the show for 7 seasons.

Not sure about 7 seasons, but I'd welcome a 4th if the proposed partnership ends up working out.

Also, Glenn Close's salary would probably cover half the budget of a Friday Night Lights episode. I'm skeptical that Directv would be interested unless Sony makes some budget cuts.

This would be great assuming they can put together another semi-plausible scenario that ties Patty and Ellen together. They pulled it off for S3.

Right, I wouldn't expect to see as strong of a supporting cast as we've had with the seasons thus far.
