‘Mad Men’ to flash forward through most of 1964
By Roger Friedman
HollywoodNews.com: This isn’t too much of a spoiler for “Mad Men.”
But it does seem like the folks from Sterling Cooper are going to flash forward a bit through most of 1964.
When we last saw Don, Betty, Roger, Joan, Pete, and Peggy it just at the end of 1963, right after the Kennedy assassination.
But episode 2 of the new season–which begins on July 25th–is called “Christmas Comes But Once a Year.” When I checked with an AMC source, the response was affirmative. This means that episode 1, “Public Relations,” may be set just a little earlier, around November 1964.
The other episodes filmed so far include some I’ve mentioned before and a few new ones. They are “The Rejected,” “The Good News,” “The Chrysanthemum and the Sword,” and my favorite so far, the tantalizing “Waldorf Stories.”
Episode 4, “The Rejected,” is directed by John Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling.
