"AMC's Ad Legends campaign is a tribute to the iconic industry veterans that shaped the world of advertising," stated Rob Sorcher, executive vice president of programming, packaging and production for AMC. "We had a unique opportunity with Mad Men to expand the scope of our campaign and step beyond traditional marketing techniques while also supporting the network's strategy of creating high quality original content for our air and online. It is an honor for us to work with these icons and showcase their stories."

AMC will create over 14 beautifully produced 30 second vignettes that will run exclusively on AMC and AMC online (www.amc.tv). The campaign will launch on August 9th and continue throughout the airing of the series. Each spot will showcase the personal story from one of the legends, beginning with Jerry Della Femina.

Set in 1960 New York, the one hour drama received tremendous critical acclaim heading into its premiere, chronicling 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.
