14th April 2008
In her first ever lead TV role, five-time Oscar-nominee and Golden Globe winner GLENN CLOSE (TV's The Shield, Dangerous Liaisons) leads a stellar cast in the riveting top-rating series, Damages, available on DVD and Blu-ray from 14th April 2007 courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
A compelling mix of legal thriller and gripping murder mystery, Damages comes from the creator of The Sopranos and is directed by ALLEN COULTER (TV's The Sopranos , Sex and the City and BBC2's Rome). Debuting on BBC1 with a massive 3.2m audience, Damages has actually increased audience share in subsequent weeks.
Described as The Devil Wears Prada meets The Firm, Damages is an addictive drama, following the turbulent lives of Patty Hewes (CLOSE), the nation's most revered and reviled high stakes litigator, and her bright and ambitious protégé Ellen Parsons, played by rising Australian star ROSE BYRNE (Marie Antoinette, Sunshine), as they become embroiled in a lawsuit with one of the wealthiest and most corrupt CEOs in the country.
The amazing cast also includes Emmy and Golden Globe nominee TED DANSON (Three Men And A Baby, Becker), TATE DONOVAN (The OC, Friends), ZELIJKO IVANEK (Black Hawk Down) and NOAH BEAN (Stay).
CLOSE, the recipient of this year's Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama is at her vicious best as the peerless Hewes and, in an unprecedented decision by an American TV channel, the show has already been confirmed for 2nd and 3rd runs in America thanks to her stellar turn.
Damages airs on BBC1 at 10.35pm on Mondays, and repeats at 11.35pm on Fridays.
