A second-season renewal for MAD MEN is imminent and could be official by end of day Wednesday. The AMC series, which was created by ex-"Sopranos" writer Matthew Weiner and is produced by Lionsgate, follows a group of advertising executives in 1960 New York. Reviews have been stellar and the skein has helped the network improve on its male demo. "Mad Men," exec produced by Weiner, stars Jon Hamm and John Slattery and airs Thursdays at 10.
This is GREAT news for fans of this show. When the inevitable DVD of season 1 is released, if you haven't yet gotten into this amazing show, catch up with the dvd's in preparation for the second season. I love just about everything about this show. From the rich storylines to the terrific performances and the beautiful look and style, MAD MEN is a stand out for television drama lovers.
