It’s been two years since the Netflix drama “Mad Men” made its way to television, and the showrunner of the show, Matthew Weiner, is eager to share his thoughts on what he thinks has made it a successful TV series.
The showrunner shared his thoughts about the success of the series on the cover of Variety magazine in the magazine’s October issue, saying, “I’m not sure it’s the best television series ever made, but it’s certainly one of the best that I have ever worked on.”
Weiner’s words echo what many people have said about the series, which has been hailed for its dark themes and dark themes of family.
While the series has not made it to Netflix, it has made its debut on HBO and has garnered a cult following among its critics and viewers.
In his conversation with Variety, Weiner said he was inspired by “Blacklist,” which is a crime drama starring Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon, which also starred Don Draper.
“The show had a lot of that sort of darkness in it, and it had this sense of family, and that sense of betrayal,” Weiner said.
“And it had a sort of family that is so complex and so deep and so complicated, and yet you had this kind of family of characters that you could sort of identify with, even though they were sort of outsiders.”
That’s a show that I think is going to be really influential, because people are going to see a lot more of it.
“It was a very unique opportunity to be a part of it and it was an amazing experience, because the people involved were fantastic. “
I wanted to be involved in this world, but I also wanted to get paid,” Weiner explained.
“It was a very unique opportunity to be a part of it and it was an amazing experience, because the people involved were fantastic.
And I’ve never felt like I’ve had more fun writing for a TV show.”
The creator of “Mad MEN” also talked about how the series was created.
“My story was very dark,” Weiner noted.
“What we did was really a combination of horror, and then we did a lot about the psychology of human behavior.
We were trying to make a show with some of the things we wanted to talk about and explore, but also some of our own, so that it would be a kind of exploration of our personal lives, too.
And we did that, and I think that was the key.”
Weinstein said that while the show was originally set in the 1960s, it was changed to reflect contemporary times.
“Mad Women” has been renewed for a fifth season, and Weiner says he hopes that his characters can return to their roots.
