  • NEW SMITHSONIAN CHANNEL(TM) SERIES TAKES VIEWERS BEHIND THE SCENES OF ADVERTISING'S FORMATIVE YEARS IN
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING
    PREMIERING SUNDAY, JANUARY 8TH AT 9 PM Trailer Photo
    SERIES FEATURES INTERVIEWS WITH MAD MEN CREATOR MATTHEW WEINER AND ACTRESS AND MODEL BROOKE SHIELDS

    NEW YORK, DECEMBER 15, 2016 -- A new Smithsonian Channel four-part series provides an inside look into the men and women who re-invented the advertising industry from post-WWII America through the 1980s. Driven by memorable, classic ad campaigns, many of which are in the collections of the Smithsonian--s National Museum of American History, the series also features clips and interviews with the creators of the groundbreaking series Mad Men. THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING premieres Sunday, January 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
    In 2015, the National Museum of American History accepted a donation of artifacts, costumes and props from the series Mad Men against the backdrop of actual advertising history as displayed in its exhibition, American Enterprise. THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING uses these museum objects to explore the fascinating commercials and ad campaigns of mid-century America. Ads from Howdy Doody to MTV reveal the impact of commercial culture, while clips and interviews with Mad Men cast and crew members offer a glimpse into the meticulously constructed world of the iconic series. Their stories are set alongside interviews with the real ad men and women of the 1950s through the 1980s -- from the top ad creators of the 1950s to Brooke Shields, who as a teen model was the centerpiece of a controversial early 1980s Calvin Klein ad campaign.
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING episodes:
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1950s
    Premieres Sunday, January 8th at 9 p.m. ET/PT
    In a post-war world, advertisers tantalized consumers with visions of futuristic homes and cars, shiny jewelry, and the newest home appliances. Advertising harnessed buying power that created an unprecedented consumer boom. Advertisers discovered an entirely new, fast-growing market -- children -- and began to market directly to them on shows like Howdy Doody. The decade saw the proliferation of the most powerful selling machine of all: television. What was previously shown in print advertisements and heard on radio ads was now seen and heard through the new and exciting medium of television - piped directly into living rooms. From --doctors-- hawking cigarettes, to the newest fins on Cadillacs, to --Does She Or Doesn--t She-- -- the ad men and women of the Fifties were re-inventing culture.
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1960s
    Premieres Sunday, January 15th at 9 p.m. ET/PT
    Starting with a game-changing Volkswagen ad created by Doyle Dane Bernbach that used self-deprecating humor, the --creative revolution-- was born. Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner explains why he began his series with the launch of the Creative Revolution. Rejecting old-fashioned advertising gospel, these new mad men and women questioned everything that advertisers once held to be true. This change in tone was made possible by new voices in advertising, as diverse talent broke into the exclusive --white shoe-- agencies. The 60s were a time of unrest and change, with protests and riots in the street -- and Madison Avenue tried to capitalize on it. As the civil rights movement gained traction, advertising was called upon to integrate. At the same time, the mystique of the counter-culture challenged the consumerism that was being pushed upon them. Ruled by the almighty dollar, advertisers were forced to change.
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1970s
    Premieres Sunday, January 22nd at 9 p.m. ET/PT
    The Regulation Revolution of the 1970s was a time when consumers got hip, government got involved, and advertisers got scared into action. The name of the game for Madison Avenue was --trust-- -- both losing it and reclaiming it. Kicked off by the banning of cigarette television commercials, it--s a decade when consumers got smart and angry, and advertisers employed the tools of the creative revolution to try and win them back with plain talk and honesty. This episode tells the story of the rise of the consumer movement, championed by Ralph Nader and his --Nader--s Raiders.-- If the 1960s promised a better world, the 70s faced the reality of delivering it. Progress is a bumpy road, but one ad -- and Mad Men finale centerpiece -- fills airwaves with a song of diversity, peace and optimism. The commercial featuring --I--d like to buy the world a Coke-- may be considered the greatest ad of all time. It certainly looked and felt the way America wanted things to be.
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING: THE 1980s
    Premieres Sunday, January 29th at 9 p.m. ET/PT
    The 1980s were a time when greed was good, 24-hour sponsored programming was legal, and advertising became entertainment. Out of the economic hardship of the 1970s, the election of Ronald Reagan offered a welcome brand of optimism. A Madison Avenue dream team delivered a Reagan campaign commercial that put his candidacy over the top -- promising --Morning in America.-- Political confidence fueled an era of heavy consumption and new categories of designer products. Fifteen-year-old model Brooke Shields starred in the most controversial campaign of the decade, for Calvin Klein jeans -- a steamy ad that was later pulled from major networks. Calvin Klein went on to make men--s underwear a fashion statement - setting the bar for the sexy, well-groomed 1980s man. Hispanic-Americans found representation that they were so dearly lacking in the advertising industry. A 1984 Super Bowl commercial, directed by Ridley Scott, introduced the Apple Macintosh that promised to revolutionize the world. At the same time, cable television exploded and MTV became a network that spoke to teens in a way no one had before. With this first generation of music videos, content and commercial became indistinguishable.
    THE REAL MAD MEN OF ADVERTISING is produced by Biscuit Century for Smithsonian Channel. Executive producers for Biscuit Century are Molly Herman and Rob Lyall. Tim Evans and David Royle serve as executive producers for Smithsonian Channel.

  • From tvline.com: Question: How will Mad Men‘s split season impact how Matt Weiner writes the final 14 episodes? For example, will he view Episode 7 as a season finale, and treat it accordingly, or will it be just a regular episode? —Dave
    Ausiello: It’s a great question, and I tried to coax an answer out of the typically tight-lipped auteur at Sunday’s Emmys (shocker: I think I succeeded.) “I’m interested in entertainment and I want the audience to be glued to it and I want them to be addicted and I want them to come back,” he said. “So I will do everything I can in those seven episodes to tell a story where they’ll be like, ‘What is the rest of this?’” (Click here to watch the full Weiner Q&A.)

  • From deadline.com: The first 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards were handed out this afternoon at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards ceremony at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
    Matt Weiner, whose Mad Men suffered a historic shutout last year with 17 nominations and no wins, was optimistic heading into the ceremony. “Ya know what, anything would be great,” he said. “I would love to see one of our (guest) actors recognized. Linda (Cardellini), Harry (Hamlin), Robert Morse. None of our actors have been recognized (with wins). We’ve never won an editing or cinematography award.” Asked whether Mad Men would possibly do a Season 8 if the price was right, Weiner said: “No, no, it’s not about the deal. I want to wrap the show up. I have a good vibe for what we’re doing in this last piece and that’s the way to go. Will there be more TV and film in my life? I hope so. I’ve written a play. I don’t expect this (the Emmy sensation) to happen again. That would be greedy.”
    Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner and series’ nominated guest actress Linda Cardellini came out to present several Emmys for hairstyling, and the chrome-domed Weiner recognized the irony. “I want you to be honest,” he said to Cardellini. “I think (my hair is) thinning a little bit.” Cardellini went on with the gag before a still flashed onscreen showing Weiner with a horrid wig, drawing a few guffaws from the crowd inside the Nokia.

    Christina Wayne is the TV executive known as having the Midas Touch within industry circles-she greenlit Mad Men despite every other studio passing on it for eight years. Wayne's four years at AMC, from 2005-2009, helped lift the channel from the basic cable hinterlands to one of the premiere destinations to witness some of the golden age of TV's best work.
    Finding, supporting, and producing Mad Men and Breaking Bad a career does make.
    Check out our interview with Christina, now currently the President of Cineflex. She's a cool, young, smart woman who sees compelling material where others see risk.

  • The Mad Men Fashion File - Season 5's Greatest Hits
    Thanks to encores on AMC, we can re-experience Mad Men's Season 5 storylines -- and its brilliant array of period costumes. But honestly, some of the characters' outfits never left our minds. (Can't you just squeeze your eyes shut and still see Megan's peeping hemlines and Sally's after-school sweatshirts?) To honor this season's most iconic moments, I've selected one costume MVP for each episode. Click through to see the picks, including a scandalous cocktail dress, a retro fur stole, and (of course) the dinner jacket visible from space.
    Episode 501-502, "A Little Kiss": Megan's Zou Bisou Bisou Dress If anything reflects the generation gap prying Don and Megan apart, it's her jaw-dropping performance at his birthday party. First, Megan invites everyone to the new apartment -- a move that completely breaches Don's intense need for privacy. Then she reveals her many talents with a sex-kitten performance that was sweet, sultry, and completely inappropriate in a room full of co-workers. Megan's oblivion -- and utter glee -- shine through her costume, a diaphanous black dress that's so short it nearly doesn't qualify as a dress. Black fishnets, low-heeled pumps, and incredible Cleopatra eye makeup complete the look. (If you'd rather sing the song than wear the dress, that's okay, too.)

  • Passing along a fun item from Xfinity TV about Jon Hamm, since Mad Men returned to television last night.  Kelly Lynch Recalls Jon Hamm's Days as a Bartender; Says Women Would Line Up to "See Him Shake His Martini Shaker" Last night, households all over the country gathered for the return of AMC's Mad Men and to watch Jon Hamm return as everyone's favorite Creative Director Don Draper. Before Hamm was throwing back drinks (an Old-Fashioned, of course) at the office, he was mixing them as a bartender at parties held by Kelly Lynch and her husband Mitch Glazer. XfinityTV.com recently spoke with Kelly Lynch, one of the stars of the upcoming Starz drama Magic City, who recalled how she and her husband used to hire Hamm to work all their house parties during his days of moonlighting as a bartender. "He was the most gorgeous and adorable guy we'd ever met," Lynch said. "All of the women would be lined up at the bar like alcoholics just to see him shake his martini shaker." Read more about Hamm's bartending days for Lynch and Glazer on XfinityTV.com: Link  and be sure to visit XfinityTV.com starting March 31st to catch the first three episodes of Magic City before it premieres on Starz on April 6th. And for those who missed out on last night's two-hour Mad Men premiere, Xfinity has the episode available today on XfinityTV.com Link  (even if you're not a Comcast subscriber) and Xfinity On Demand. Xfinity will continue to have all Mad Men episodes this season immediately following the next day on Xfinity On Demand and on XfinityTV.com (note: only the first two episodes are available nationally, otherwise you must log in with your Comcast customer ID).
     

  • TV Guide Magazine sat down with the cast of Mad Men Link and series creator Matthew Weiner and got the scoop on Season 5:
    On what fans can expect from the new season (premiering March 25):
    Matthew Weiner: "It's about trying to make sense of the world as things change. We're deeper into the 1960s and everything's shifting. But I'm not spoiling anything by saying we did not get a new set. I would keep an eye on the hierarchy of the business."
    Jon Hamm: "Season 5 is about deepening what we started and trying to figure out if there's more to life. The fifth season is about putting the pieces back together."
    John Slattery: "There are some surprises coming this season that are so out of control, I wish we had cameras in people's houses and could watch them go, "No way!" as they watch the show."
    On how Betty Draper has affected her public image:
    January Jones: "I'm confused by the reaction. I read on the Internet that I'm an icy blonde in real life. I'm not icy."
    On playing Betty:
    January Jones: "I don't know if Betty knows what happiness means. She's not in touch with who she is. Selfishly, I hope Betty stays miserable, angry, and complex. It's more fun to play."
    On Don Draper's relationship with Megan:
    Matthew Weiner: "I think everyone only likes the beginning of things. [But] maybe Don's going to have a shot at happiness."
    On Sally Draper:
    Matthew Weiner: "I take her character very seriously. I never miss the chance to see the world through her eyes. Yeah, she's going to be growing up. Absolutely."
    On what Don Draper would think of the world today (he would be 86 years old):
    Jon Hamm: "I don't think Don's making it to 86, to be honest. I think he's long gone by then. The guy's just lived too hard a life."

  • This Emmy season, "Mad Men" fans are cheering on Don Draper's elderly secretary and comedic relief "Ida Blankenship" played by chameleon Randee Heller who is Emmy nominated for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama." Dubbed "The Queen of Perversions" by Roger Sterling (John Slattery), Randee Heller starred as Don Draper's (Jon Hamm) incompetent yet snark-tastic bespectacled secretary-from-hell. Heller's memorable stint and unforgettable exit on the 4th Season of "Mad Men" earned her the praise: "An Emmy Nomination For Miss Blankenship Is A Win For Us All" by DLISTED.
    With a recurring role on this season of USA Network's "In Plain Sight" alongside Mary McCormack and Frederick Weller, Heller is also known for her iconic role as the mother of Ralph Macchio in THE KARATE KID and THE KARATE KID 3. She made history for playing the first lesbian ever on television in the series "Soap" alongside Billy Crystal. Heller's stage career parallels her astounding resume of television work including roles in "Grease," "Cabaret" and Bermuda Avenue Triangle," and most notably as Barbra Streisand's mother in the stage performance of Streisand's "Timeless" 2000 concert series.
    A breast cancer survivor, Heller is an active volunteer at the American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery, a program that has helped people cope with their breast cancer experience. We would love to secure Randee Heller as a guest to discuss her road to the Emmy's and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

  • Scoop! MAD MEN Alum Lawyers Up for USA Network Series Abigail Spencer
     

  • Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks recently talked to Parade.com about returning to the Mad Men set next month, the drama behind the show's hiatus, her years as a "goth" kid in high school, and much more more.
    Here are some highlights:
    Heading back to the 1960s for season five... "Yes, we're going to get back to filming next month. We don't have an exact date, but we're all very anxious and excited. I want to get the show back on the air because I know lots of people are waiting!"
    Any doubt that the series would get back on track? "I always had faith that everything was going to go fine. [Series creator] Matt Weiner is an incredible producer and writer and creator of our show. He's very passionate about it and really held firm to what he wanted and what was best for the show. There wouldn't be a show without him, so I knew it was going to work out. It just took a little while."
    Will both Christina and co-star January Jones be sporting baby bumps this season? "That's a good question! I don't know what's going to happen yet. I know the writers are in the room working away and I'm going to go in and try to get some hints, but generally we don't know what's going to happen until we get that first script. So that makes me really excited to find out because I don't even know."
    On having her own wish of becoming an actress come true... "I've always been sort of a ham. I was always attracted to the arts, even at a very young age. I was in dance classes and in theater productions. It's something that came really naturally to me. I was a little Goth kid in high school and dyed my hair purple, but I was still doing performances and acting. I just looked very dramatic with my purple hair!

  • Why Mad Men Is So Popular 12/31/10
     

  • "Mad Men" star January Jones talks to AOL's Moviefone about the new season as Betty Draper and upcoming movies including Unknown (which opens this weekend) and X-Men: First Class (which opens in June). In her interview she also discusses the comparisons to Grace Kelly and her revealing costume in the new X-Men movie. Quote highlights are available below and to read the entire article you can click here.  
    Some quotes:
    On Grace Kelly comparisons: "The Grace Kelly comparison, I take that with a grain of salt. She was really beautiful and great and philanthropic. I don't know how I'm supposed to live up to that."
    On how revealing her Emma Frost costume in 'X-Men' is: "I'm naked. [Laughs.] In the comics, the costume is pretty much just painted on and she has a pretty unrealistic body. So it was a challenge for me. I literally went from 'Mad Men,' packed the next day and flew to [the set in] London -- so there wasn't any time for me to do a lot of toning up or getting fit. I just had to wing it.
    But we had a lot of fun with the costumes in that we wanted to make them very revealing and sexy, and they're always white and pearlized.
    We got that Emma Frost look, but with a '60s twist -- and a lot of sparkles, because she turns into a diamond. We did all the research from the comic books and took bits and pieces of her costumes from different time periods and meshed it all together. We did a lot of leather."
    On being involved in coming up with the costume: "Definitely. I have to feel good in it. I'm the one who's got to wear it 18 hours a day. It was a lot of boots, a lot of hair, a lot of boobs. You can't please everyone, but the goal is to not disappoint everyone."
    On what's next for Betty in 'Mad Men': "Everybody assumes I'd like to see her happy, but it's not fun to play out. [Laughs.] I never really think about that and I never really try to guess -- because I'm always wrong."
