AMC Schedules April 7 For A Two-Hour MAD MEN Launch!!
A two-hour “Mad Men” TV-movie scripted by series mastermind Matthew Weiner will launch the series' sixth season on April 7, according to AMC.
That’s a tad later than last year’s two-hour “Mad Men” season premiere, which arrived March 25.
“It will advance in time, as it does… I can’t say how much or how little,” Weiner told the New York Times. “We’re coming off a period in Don’s life where he’s trying to normalize, and trying to have this relationship — a real relationship with this woman that he fell in love with. She expressed her desires and that was a surprise for him. On this show, it’s a very rich, full orchestra, and we like to follow what is the next stage in these people’s lives.”
When we last saw Don Draper, American just entering 1967’s “Summer of Love.” “Hair” opened off-Broadway Oct. 17, 1967. On Oct. 18 university students in Wisconsin protested recruiting by Napalm manufacturer Dow Chemical. The news in 1968 was dominated by civil rights activism and a wildly unpopular war in Vietnam. When we resume, will Megan and Sally have been transformed into hippies?
And ill Lane Pryce’s name remain on the door to remind Don of his former partner’s horrifying end?
With “Game of Thrones” long set to launch its third season on March 31, we should have some quite exciting Sundays ahead of us this spring.
