After moving to DirecTV following the show’s cancellation by FX, producers of Glenn Close’s critically acclaimed show "Damages" are being encouraged "to take things even further than we did on FX," especially the foul-mouthed language from lead character Patty Hewes, played by Close, says executive producer Glenn Kessler.
All of this comes to us from an article by our friend Gary Levin in USA Today.
“Damages,” from Sony Pictures Television, will next look at the actions of a fictionalized Blackwater, with a wrongful-death suit filed against a military contractor, the story notes. The show is casting two guest stars who will appear season-long, with the first playing a former Navy SEAL who runs the company and is the defendant, and the second taking the part of a mysterious but powerful character who is also implicated in the crime, the article adds.
The plotline should give Patty Hewes, played by Glenn Close, more of a reason to explore her potty-mouthed language, the story says.
"You know she’s been waiting to do it; you can see it in her eyes," says Kessler.
Many critics consider "Damages" one of hte best series on TV, but the show never drew a big audience during its three-season run on FX. DirecTV has committed to the series for two seasons, the article says.
