AMC Nominated for Two Golden Globes for First Ever Original Dramatic Series "Mad Men"

New York, New York - December 13, 2007 - This morning, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced its Golden Globe´┐Ż nominations. Included was AMC's series Mad Men which received nominations in the following categories:



The following is a statement on behalf of AMC General Manager and Executive Vice President Charlie Collier:

"We want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for their recognition of Mad Men and its lead actor, Jon Hamm. Matthew Weiner created a remarkable work in Mad Men and the performances of the uniquely talented Jon Hamm and the cast were central to the series' critical success.

"This honor for AMC's first ever original scripted dramatic series is a great acknowledgement of the network's dedication to create quality original programming that can stand side by side with our network's extensive library of the best films of all time."

In addition to the Golden Globe nominations announced today, the Writers Guild Association nominated AMC's Mad Men in the following categories: Best Dramatic Series, Best New Series, and Best Episodic Drama.

Mad Men is a smart and cinematic drama about the professional lives, social mores and sexual exploits of advertising executives on Madison Avenue circa 1960, when the industry was at its height of glamour, power, and prestige. The setting is the Sterling Cooper agency, which sells everything from cigarettes to political candidates. The protagonist, Don Draper, is a fast-rising creative director whose smooth exterior conceals any number of secrets. The show's cast includes: Jon Hamm ('We Were Soldiers'), Elisabeth Moss ('West Wing'), Vincent Kartheiser ('Angel'), January Jones ('American Wedding'), and Christina Hendricks ('Kevin Hill'), as well as guest star John Slattery ('K Street', 'Sex and the City'). Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), the leading independent filmed entertainment studio, produces the series with AMC's Vlad Wolynetz, Vice President of Production, Series and Movies, and Christina Wayne, Vice President of Scripted Series and Movies, overseeing the development and production of the drama.

Mad Men served as AMC's first ever foray into original scripted series and received unprecedented accolades from the press including being deemed "the smartest and the most compelling television show of the year" by GQ. In September the network announced that it has renewed the series for a second season which will premiere in the summer of 2008. Continuing its original programming momentum, AMC will premiere its newest original series, Breaking Bad, on January 20 at 10PM ET/PT/9C. The series is created by Vince Gilligan (X-Files) and follows the story of a desperate man, played by Bryan Cranston (Malcolm in the Middle), who turns to a life of crime to secure his family's financial security.

In 2006, AMC received three Golden Globe nominations for the network's first ever original movie-event Broken Trail. The miniseries starring Robert Duvall and Thomas Hayden Church went on to garner several industry awards including four Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Miniseries, Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Supporting Actor, and Outstanding Casting for a Miniseries.
