Hell yeah: Mad Men contract dispute resolved

1 Apr

Okay basically everything else in the news today is just fucking awful, so here’s your good news. Mad Men is being renewed for 2 seasons! Series creator Matthew Weiner finally reached a deal with AMC.

While Weiner will be paid handsomely for staying with the show — people familiar with his contract say it is worth close to $10 million a season — money was not the main issue threatening his status. AMC had wanted to add additional commercials to “Mad Men” and Lionsgate wanted to find ways to cut costs in production of the expensive period drama. AMC had also wanted to pursue more product placement and product integration in the show to help it recoup its costs.

Sort of ironic, right?

But hey, whatever works.
