Mad Men Renewed For Three More Seasons…But Then That's It!

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzJon Hamm

mad men renewed for three more seasons

Cherish these next three seasons, Don Draper fans.

Earlier this week, we were still waiting to hear whether or not Mad Men show creator Matthew Weiner would take AMC's $30 million offer to continue with the show.

Now, it looks like he's taken the offer. Here's what he had to say about it:

"I'm thrilled."

"I walked away from it 4-5 times in the last few days. It's never been about money. I wanted to do the show I wanted to do and the show the audience has come to expect."

And here's what Weiner had to say about the future of Mad Men:

"These will be the last 3 seasons of the period drama. I'm going to take it one year at a time without the distraction to ever have to go through this again. I'm incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support and overwhelmed that I get to finish telling the stories I want to tell."

We're sure Mad Men fans will be sad when this show is gone, but at least there are three more guaranteed seasons. And who knows? Matthew Weiner could always change his mind…

Are U excited to hear that Mad Men is coming back for three more seasons?

Mad Men WILL Return…In Early 2012

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness BlitzJon Hamm

mad men will return in early 2012

It's been quite the day for Mad Men fans!

First, Mad Men season 4 was released on DVD/Blu-ray today, and now we've learned that despite the fact that AMC and show creator Matthew Weiner have yet to settle on a deal, the show WILL return in early 2012!

Here's what AMC had to say about it:

“AMC has officially authorized production of season 5 of Mad Men, triggering our option with Lionsgate (Mad Men‘s production company). While we are getting a later start than in years past due to ongoing, key non-cast negotiations, Mad Men will be back for a fifth season in early 2012.”

No word yet on whether or not show creator Matthew Weiner will take AMC's $30 million offer to continue with the show.

Sources say his main objection to continuing with the show on AMC is the network's "demands to cut costs and further monetize the show" by "adding a couple more minutes of commercials, product placement and ditching two series regulars."

On the other hand, Weiner's $30 million salary would make him "the highest-paid showrunner in basic cable history." Guess he COULD always take a smaller salary and put some of that money towards the show…

We're just glad to hear that the show will be returning, one way or another.

As we said before, we've been starting to really feel the lack of Jon Hamm in our lives. And no, his minor role in Sucker Punch didn't do it for us!

Are U excited to hear that Mad Men will def return in 2012?

Mad Men Creator Goes To The Big Screen

Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner Goes Big Screen!

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is underway with his first feature film, You Are Here. Sources have just confirmed that the film should be going into production shortly with Jack Black, Matt Dillon and Renee Zellweger in the starring roles. (That's after Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Jennifer Aniston reportedly pulled out! Whomp, whomp!)

The whole is centric around two friends in their 30s who have little direction in their lives. That is, until on of their father's dies and leaves him the family business to take over.

Normally, we would say it sounds like another run-of-the-Hollywood-mill movie, but with Matt's track record on Mad, we think he might not disappoint.

Thoughts?

Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner Goes Big Screen!

MELtdown May Guest Star In Mad Men

Filed under: TV NewsMel Gibson

What do you get when you combine the epitome of cool with the epitome of crazy? We may get to find out!

Mel Gibson is currently in talks with Mad Men show creator Matthew Weiner about the possibility of being involved in a season five story arc, which starts shooting in July. Given the fact that he's unhirable his current schedule, he should be available at that time.

Here's what columnist Liz Smith had to say about Weiner's surprising consideration of Gibson as a guest star:

"Weiner — who is Jewish and can overlook Mel's infamous drunk rant of several years ago — told a pal recently that he sees a lot of dramatic potential pitting Mel against Don Draper."

Crazy vs. Cool sounds like it could be quite inneresting, but are we really willing to support him, even if the role is tailored to be somewhat sarcastic and self-referential for Gibson?

What do U think? Would U watch MELtdown on Mad Men?

Mad Men Producer Pissed About The New York Times For Publishing Spoilers!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV News

Ouch! He is NOT happy, and rightfully so!

The upcoming, much-anticipated season of Mad Men is almost upon is, and series creator Matthew Weiner, who is notorious about keeping the story under wraps until it airs, is livid about a New York Times article by Alessandra Stanley that reveals quite a few spoilers for what's to come!

He says:

“I was shocked – really shocked. I would love to have it known that this was done totally without my approval. Ninety-nine percent of the reporters who wrote about the show did not write about the story. A lot of people told me they were blindsided by (the Stanley article). You’d think the New York Times wouldn’t have to scoop me. It’s bittersweet when you don’t get to have the experience of seeing the show as it was meant to be seen. In some ways, it ruins the show. I’m kind of powerless. It’s the bargain you make: I wanted to have press, and it was nice to get that kind of space with those pictures. The alternative is not to share these things with the press any more – but how can you expect journalists to write about the show if you don’t? It was all very disappointing to me.”

Lame!

It's too bad that his request for spoiler-free previews was not honored by everyone!

So if you don't want to know what happens, stay away from The New York Times, folks!

What do U think?? Should The New York Times have published that article??
