Win at all costs.
Rose Byrne stars as Ellen Parsons, an ambitious new lawyer who becomes enmeshed in a web of deceit after going to work for relentless litigator Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), whose sights are set on bringing down a powerful billionaire in Damages, a new one-hour drama series.
At Hewes & Associates, Ellen learns the ropes – and of the rigors of the job – from Patty’s trusted lieutenant, Tom Kent (Tate Donovan, The O.C.), before being put to work on a civil suit targeting Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson, Becker), a billionaire businessman accused of an illegal stock sale that saved his own fortune but bankrupted his employees. Ignoring efforts to settle out of court by the tycoon’s cunning lawyer, Ray Fiske (Zeljko Ivanek, Black Hawk Down), Patty senses the chance for a big win that will send a costly message to Frobisher, while satisfying her clients and making her richer. But Patty’s actions could put Ellen in terrible danger.
