Damages: Saved by DirecTV!!!

at . Comments

Patty Hewes will live to scheme another day.

Another 20 days, to be exact.

In a surprising move, DirecTV has agreed to a deal with Damages, as that company's 101 network will air two more seasons of the drama - each consisting of 10 episodes - starting next year.

Said Patty Ishimoto, general manager of The 101 Network and vice president of entertainment for DirecTV:

“We’re excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television as we breathe new life into this outstanding drama. 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.“

Unlike DirecTV's deal with Friday Night Lights, Damages will only air on this network.

We'll have more in this deal as information becomes available.
