AMC CELEBRATES THE END OF AN ERA WITH UNIQUE "MAD MEN" ON-AIR CELEBRATION

Every Episode of the Award-Winning Series Will Air in Order Beginning with the Pilot Episode on Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00pm ET/PT, and Leading into the Series Finale on Sunday, May 17th at 10:00pm ET/PT

To Pay Homage to "Mad Men," All of AMC's Sister Networks - BBC AMERICA, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv - Will Suspend Regular Programming and Air a Special Message in Honor of "Mad Men" Timed to the Series Finale on AMC

NEW YORK, NY - May 12, 2015 - In celebration of the iconic, award-winning series, and in anticipation of the final episode, AMC will air a marathon of all seven seasons of the entire "Mad Men" series, which is produced by Lionsgate, in consecutive order beginning on Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00pm ET/PT and leading into the "Mad Men" series finale on Sunday, May 17th at 10:00pm ET/PT.

To pay homage to "Mad Men's" esteemed place in television history, all of AMC's sister networks - BBC AMERICA, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv - will forego regularly scheduled programming for one hour timed to the "Mad Men" finale and instead air a special message commemorating the series.

Launching during the five-day "Mad Men" on-air event is the all-new 'Times of Your Life' spot - the final promo for the series. The beautiful retrospective piece, set to the popular song that was also used in a 1970s Kodak ad campaign, is presented from Don Draper's perspective and features memorable, moving scenes from the series. The spot, which uses the Paul Anka version of the song, will debut on Wednesday, May 13th and will also serve as the curtain raiser for the final episode, airing immediately prior to the series finale on Sunday, May 17th.

Additionally, AMC will air vintage promos from past seasons of the series, celebrity fan tributes and interview footage from recent "Mad Men" red carpet events. In addition, spots showcasing important first moments from the series will air in between episodes, as well as a sequence of "Madvertising" vignettes - facts and famous quotes about the advertising industry.

"Turning AMC over to 'Mad Men' and airing every episode of every season as a lead-in to the finale on Sunday seems a fitting way to continue celebrating what this series has meant to the fans, to television and to our network," said Charlie Collier, AMC president. "We are also enormously appreciative of our sister networks who are paying tribute to this remarkable program that has had such an impact on our entire company."

Off-air, as part of the "Mad Men" finale celebration, AMC is partnering with Film Independent, the non-profit arts organization, to host a "Mad Men" Live Read and screening of the series finale on Sunday, May 17th in Los Angeles. The one-of-a-kind event will include a Jason Reitman-directed live read of the classic "Mad Men" season one finale, "The Wheel," featuring a surprise celebrity cast taking on the iconic "Mad Men" roles, followed by a screening of the series finale with the cast and creator/writer/director/executive producer, Matthew Weiner.

On AMC.com, AMC will be unveiling "Mad Men: The Fan Cut," a version of the show's pilot episode re-created by everyday fans and filmmakers commissioned by AMC. The complete re-imagined episode will also be available on madmenfancut.com and YouTube.

Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama "Mad Men" follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising. The AMC drama made history as the first basic cable series ever to win the Emmy(R) for Outstanding Drama Series over four consecutive years. Created by Emmy(R) winner and executive producer Matthew Weiner, "Mad Men" is anchored by an ensemble cast, including Jon Hamm, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Jessica Paré, Kiernan Shipka, Christopher Stanley, Jay R. Ferguson, Kevin Rahm and Mason Vale Cotton.
