MAD MEN (article first published : 2008-05-18)

Mad Men is a new series coming shortly on M-Net. It is a drama about one of New York's most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960s, focusing on one of the firm's most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper. Set in 1960 New York City, in an unexpected new world - the high-powered and glamorous “Golden Age” of advertising - where everyone is selling something and nothing is ever what you expect it to be.

The drama unfolds around Don Draper (Jon Hamm), the biggest ad man in the business. As he makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels.

Mad Men was all the rage at this year’s Golden Globe Awards ceremony. The series won the award for Best Drama and John Hamm received the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama. Mad Men starts on M-Net on May 25 at 22h00.
