About "Mad Men"

Set in 1960s New York, "Mad Men" is a sexy and provocative original drama that follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising. Created and executive produced by Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Matthew Weiner, the show's cast includes: Golden Globe-winner Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Jared Harris, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Robert Morse and Kiernan Shipka. Lionsgate, the leading independent filmed entertainment studio, produces the series. "Mad Men" Season 3 premieres Sunday, July 25 at 10pm ET.

About "Breaking Bad"

Created by acclaimed writer/producer/director Vince Gilligan, "Breaking Bad" follows Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a milquetoast high school chemistry teacher who discovers he is dying of lung cancer. Desperate to secure his family's financial future, Walt teams up with a former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), to turn a used RV into a mobile drug lab. Filmed on location in Albuquerque, NM, "Breaking Bad" season three stars 2008 and 2009 Emmy-winner Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte, Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks. "Breaking Bad" is produced by High Bridge Productions, Inc. and Gran Via Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television for AMC. AMC announced in June the renewal of "Breaking Bad" for a fourth season.

About "The Prisoner"

Based on the original 1960s British series, "The Prisoner" starred Jim Caviezel in the title role of Six, a part that was originally made famous when played by McGoohan and two-time Oscar(R) nominee Ian McKellen as Two. AMC co-produced "The Prisoner" with UK producer Granada and ITV Productions. The mini-series was written by Bill Gallagher and directed by Nick Hurran (It's a Boy Girl Thing, Little Black Book).
