Damages returns for it's fourth season this summer on DirecTV and the main case for the season is wrongful-death suit filed against a military contractor over something that happened in a war zone
The show, set to resume production next month, is now casting two season-long guest stars, one a former Navy SEAL who runs the company and is a defendant in the case; the other is a powerful but mysterious character also involved in the crime.
Executive producer Glenn Kessler says DirecTV is "encouraging us to take things even further than we did on FX," and the military plotline gives ruthless lawyer Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) a reason to be more authentically potty-mouthed. "You know she's been waiting to do it; you can see it in her eyes," he says.
The budget will be slightly reduced but is being spread across fewer, longer episodes (10 instead of 13 in previous seasons, and an ad-free hour, up from 43 minutes on FX). "We're not looking to have it picked up and then have it be a minor-league version of the series," says executive producer Todd Kessler.
