Season 6

Mad Men is an American period drama television series created by Matthew Weiner and set in the 1960s at the fictional Sterling Cooper advertising agency on New York City's Madison Avenue, which centres on Don Draper, a high-level advertising executive, and the people in his life in and out of the office. It also depicts the changing social mores of early 1960s America.

What you are, what you want, what you love doesn't matter. It's all about how you sell it.

From AMC and the Emmy Award-winning executive producer and writer of The Sopranos Matthew Weiner, comes Mad Men, a provocative drama about how to sell the truth.

Set in 1960s New York, the series is about the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell while their private world gets sold.

The Setting

In 1960, advertising agencies were an all-powerful influence on the masses. Personal and professional manipulation and sexual exploits defined the workplace and closed the deals.

The high profile Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency created advertising campaigns – from cigarettes to political candidates - better than anyone.

It was a time of great ferment. Women had barely begun to come into their own. Librium and birth control were on the move. Ethics in the workplace, smoke-free environments, sexual harassment and ethnic diversity were workshops of the future.

The Premise

The series depicts the sexual exploits and social mores of this most innovative yet ruthless profession, while taking an unflinching look at the ad-men who shaped the hopes and dreams of Americans on a daily basis.

The Players

The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper, the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency.

As Don 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.

The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960 traditional family values.

Broadcast Notes
