John Hamm to Direct ‘Mad Men’ Season Premiere
I have been saying this for years! AMC’s ground breaking television series, Mad Men, is the best show on Television in my opinion. In a time where our channels are flooded with reality shows and dumbed down programming, it is a relief to come across a great series that focuses on acting, storyline and depth of the characters.
Mad Men’s lead Don Draper (John Hamm) has his hands full in the upcoming season and so does Hamm himself. Not only will he be playing his ad exec role but he will also step behind the camera and direct the season 5 premiere. This is the type of promotion that would impress Draper himself.
For those of you who have been living under a rock, Mad Men is an award winning show about a fictional advertising firm in Manhattan during the 1960s. The show focuses on the lives of key members in the firm, both in and out of the office, with the social changes of the ‘60s in the back drop. It has everything a guy could want in a television show. Money, sex, power deals, prestige and yes…women!
