Is 'Damages' Just Dark Timeline 'Devil Wears Prada'?

Young talented upstart gets big job with powerful woman, much to the dismay of her loved ones. It's a log line that could describe both 2006's The Devil Wears Prada and 2007's Damages, the FX series about an intimidating force and her naively hard-working protégé. So is it just the dark timeline version of the popular rom-com?

That's just one of the topics my co-host Allison Piwowarski and I discuss in our latest episodes of TV. Watch. Repeat., in which we delve into the history of one of the first peak TV series to feature an anti-heroine. Along the way, we learn why Glenn Close eschewed warnings that TV would kill her career, dig into the chaotic writing style of the series, and find out how its cast is all too connected to Julie Cooper.

So break out your sharp short hairstyle and enjoy the story of Curb Your Enthusiasm on our latest episode of TV. Watch. Repeat. on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts. And be sure to check out our daily pop culture podcast, Pop Chaser, for all your entertainment headline needs!
