Damages is a hit drama on FX.
The series is a thrilled set in the world of New York City litigation. It stars Glenn Close as shady, no-nonsense lawyer Patty Hewes. During the show's first season, she hired Ellen Parsons as a protege. These two eventually tangled - mostly behind each other's backs - throughout a contentious civil action lawsuit they were prosecuting.
With Hewes, more than just fortunes are at stake. Lives are, too. She plays a dangerous game of litigation that has caused Ellen to fight back. The tension between these two is the driving force behind Damages.
