AMC's Award Winning Series ''Mad Men'' Begins Production of Third Season on Monday, May 4th

Produced by Lionsgate, New Season Set to Debut in August 2009

NEW YORK, NY - May 4, 2009 - AMC announced today the start of production on season three of its award-winning and critically acclaimed original drama series, "Mad Men." Created, written and executive produced by Matthew Weiner (Executive Producer/Writer, "The Sopranos"), "Mad Men" follows the personal and professional lives of New York advertising execs circa 1960. Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), the leading independent filmed entertainment studio, produces the series for AMC. Season three is scheduled to premiere in August 2009.

Returning cast members include Golden Globe winner Jon Hamm ("We Were Soldiers"), Elisabeth Moss ("West Wing"), Vincent Kartheiser ("Angel"), January Jones ("We Are Marshall"), and Christina Hendricks ("Kevin Hill"), as well as guest star John Slattery ("Charlie Wilson's War," "K Street").

"Mad Men" debuted on AMC in July 2007 to great acclaim. The series has gone on to win six Emmy Awards, including the Emmy for Outstanding Drama, the first ever for a basic cable network. It is also the only basic cable series to win the Golden Globe award two years in a row (2007 and 2008) for Best Television Series-Drama. It has gained unprecedented recognition and has been hailed as, "One of the most critically acclaimed TV shows ever," by the New York Post. TV Guide called it, "madly, marvelously mesmerizing," while The New York Times said, "It's a sleek, hard boiled drama with a soft, satirical core." USA Today said, "If this is the future of TV, the future is looking good."
