Weiner’s credits also include a 2007 Writers Guild Award (TV) and a 2005 PGA Golden Laurel Award, as well as stints working on various television series such as The Naked Truth, Becker, and Andy Richter Controls the Universe.

About Mad Men:
The sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama follows the lives of men and women in an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell. Mad Men has received wide critical acclaim, particularly for historical authenticity and visual style. The series has won numerous awards, including 3 Golden Globes and 6 Emmys. It is the second cable series to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series and the first basic cable series to do so.
