Damages returns exclusively on Showtime.

Season 2 of the triple Emmy award and Golden Globe winner Damages returns to Showseries every Sunday at 8pm from May 3. The new season continues to follow the turbulent lives of Patty Hewes (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Glenn Close), the nation's most revered and reviled high-stakes litigator, and her bright, ambitious young protoygoy Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne).

Following her unprecedented victory over billionaire Arthur Frobisher (Ted Danson), Patty Hewes has the legal world at her feet.

Just as she's pondering her next move, Daniel Purcell (William Hurt), a man from Patty's mysterious past, storms back into her life, catapulting Patty 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 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.

Dubai-based broadcasting company MBC Group announces major new deal with giant Warner Bros to show all its US TV shows for the next two years.

The agreement inked with Warner Bros International Television Distribution (WBITD) will now make MBC the first-run Middle East home to new television series distributed by the US broadcaster.

Under terms of the new deal, MBC will now have first-run access to all new TV shows distributed by WBITD from the 2008-2011 US television seasons.

MBC will debut WBITD series in the region on free TV, at the same time as the US broadcast of the programmes, officials said.

For WBITD, the deal marks the first time the studio has offered its new programming for premiere in the region on free TV, as well as the first time the studio has offered its new programming for broadcast concurrent with the US.

The first three WBITD series to premiere on MBC under the new pact will be The Mentalist, Fringe and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - all launching within the next two weeks.

Tim Riordan, group TV director at MBC, said: "This is our biggest deal to date with Warner Bros, one of the most successful studios in the world, and we are very excited to offer our viewers today's most popular series internationally.

"MBC realises the importance of airing shows in this region concurrently with the US, in order to meet the growing demands of the Arab audience."

The Mentalist, Fringe and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will launch exclusively on MBC Action as part of the big Action April campaign.
