Mad Men

We have the new Mad Men season 6 teaser trailer, hot off the presses. The video seeks to lure viewers to old fashioned delights by promising “the affair of the year”. That’s quite a statement. Do think this season can deliver?

Mad Men will make a dashing return to AMC at 9 p.m. on April 7 with a special two-hour season premiere. Let’s hope things pick up right where that season 5 cliffhanger left off. Will he or won’t he?

As we shared before, the critically acclaimed series will settle back down into its usual 10 p.m. time slot in the week following the special season premier episode. Creator Matt Weiner wrote the two-hour premiere himself, so expect some drama. In fact, the show’s executive producer Scott Hornbacher directed it!

“To be able to continue exploring the stories of these characters for a sixth season is an amazing opportunity,” Weiner said in a statement. “We love mining this world and look forward to bringing the audience stories that we hope will continue to both surprise and entertain them.”

Mining is a great choice of word. There’s so much to uncover!

So, what can you guess from watching the new teaser? Ken and Harry look as jovial as a pair of foxes in a hen house. Don still seems isolated, does he not? Really there is nothing here that screams spoiler, but developments are always kept hush, hush when it comes to Mad Men. Previous promo work revealed the cast in black tie and illuminated the trip to Hawaii already.

Also in Mad Men news is this business about a law suit. It was initiated by Gita Hall May, a model who worked in the 50’s and 60’s. She’s suing Lionsgate because her photo appears in the opening credits of Mad Men and no one ever asked her permission. The image was taken from a 1950s photograph of May which was taken by the photographer Richard Avedon and used in a Revlon hairspray ad of that day.
