BBC Four Winter/Spring 2008 
Mad Men:  (L-R) Roger Sterling (John Slattery) and Don Draper (Jon Hamm)

BBC Four Winter/Spring 2008



Mad Men


The latest series from Matthew Weiner, Emmy Award-winning writer and executive producer of The Sopranos – has its UK premiere on BBC Four this winter.

 

Mad Men is a glossy and beautifully rendered drama series set in Sixties New York. It delves into the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Sterling Cooper Advertising – an agency where power struggles, hard drinking and clandestine sexual exploits define the workplace and close the deals.

 

Created and written by executive producer Weiner, Mad Men stars Jon Hamm (We Were Soldiers), Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing) and John Slattery (Desperate Housewives).
