Entertainment Weekly is reporting that DirecTV could be about to step in and save the critically acclaimed, but low rated, Glenn Close drama series Damages. The drama airs on FX in America, and BBC One in the UK, but has always been challenged by low ratings even though it gets extremely good reviews. Reports in America now suggest that FX can’t keep the drama afloat on its own and Sony Television is in talks with DirecTV to save Damages.
If the deal goes ahead it would be similar to the one between NBC and DirecTV which saved Friday Night Lights with a fourth season of Damages airing on DirecTV first before airing on FX at a later date. The third series of Damages is due to end on FX later this month. Although the series is low rated it has won several awards and is one of FX’s highly regarded dramas.
