An Afternoon with Matthew Weiner
Creator and Executive Producer of Mad Men and Executive Producer and Writer on The Sopranos
“The acting (from a mostly unknown cast), cinematography (you can just stare at this series) and especially Weiner’s writing carry [Mad Men] to exceptional heights.” San Francisco Chronicle
Get caught up in the madness with Matthew Weiner, the creator and executive producer of the hit AMC original series Mad Men. Since its debut in 2007, Mad Men has not only reinvigorated 1960s retro with its uncanny historical accuracy and flawless visual style, but has also garnered three consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Drama Series; three Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Drama Series; and a myriad of other honors. Culture-watchers love its complex storylines that reveal American life on the cusp of enormous social change. So don your pearls and dust off your martini shaker for a dynamic discussion with one of the “Maddest Men” in television.
