"Mad Men"

3rd\SE Quadrant The Year-End Mega Matrix

Plot Summary from AMC: What you are, what you want, what you love doesn't matter. It's all about how you sell it. From AMC and the Emmy® Award-winning executive producer and writer of "The Sopranos" Matthew Weiner, comes Mad Men, a provocative new primetime drama about how to sell the truth. Set in 1960 New York, the daring new series is about the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold.

Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote in his review, "The acting (from a mostly unknown cast), cinematography (you can just stare at this series) and especially Weiner's writing carry the series to exceptional heights."

AMC has renewed "Mad Men." 13 episodes of the drama have been ordered, and AMC will bring it back the skein in June.
