Set in New York's world of high stakes litigation, DAMAGES follows the lives of Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), the nation's most revered and most reviled litigator, and her bright, ambitious protégée Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) as they become embroiled in a class action lawsuit targeting Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), one of the country's wealthiest CEOs. As Patty battles Frobisher and his attorney, Ellen learns what it takes to win at all costs - and that lives, not just fortunes, are at stake.
Another season of the Emmy® Award-winning show comes to DVD. After her unprecedented victory over billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) has the legal world at her feet. Just as she's pondering her next move, Daniel Purcell (William Hurt), a man from Patty's past, throws her into a new legal challenge. What starts as a domestic murder case escalates into the highest reaches of government as Patty unearths a vast conspiracy. At the same time, Ellen (Rose Byrne) is on a mission to take down Patty. She's agreed to act as an informant for the FBI, assisting them in their criminal investigation of Patty and the firm. As Patty unravels the mystery surrounding Daniel Purcell, she must also negotiate the perilous minefield both inside and outside her office.
Inspired by recent worldwide economic events, the acclaimed third season of the award-winning legal thriller stars three-time Emmy®-winner Glenn Close as litigator Patty Hewes. Confronting the most challenging case of her illustrious career, Patty and trusted lieutenant Tom Shayes (Tate Donovan) meet their match against the manipulative Tobin family empire - matriarch Marilyn (Lily Tomlin), son Joe (Campbell Scott) and the clan's loyal attorney Leonard Winstone (Martin Short). When former protégée Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) is also pulled into the maelstrom, she discovers she hasn't escaped Patty Hewes after all.
For brilliant attorney Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), the stakes have never been higher, professionally or personally, in the riveting fourth season of the hit legal thriller. When Patty joins former charge Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) to expose a corrupt security firm in Afghanistan, they unravel a cover-up at the highest levels involving an inscrutable mercenary agent (Dylan Baker), a key witness taken hostage (Chris Messina) and the powerful CEO (double Emmy® winner John Goodman) with his own explosive secrets. It all comes down to one final, fatal double-cross.
Channing McClaren's (Ryan Phillippe) controversial website devoted to revealing confidential information about corporations and the government exposes the identity of a whistleblower (Jenna Elfman).
