“Mad Men”: Getting the gang back together

Now that season three ofMad Men is all systems go, Matt Weiner says he’s not expecting to make many changes in the writing staff from last season.

Fans will be happy to hear that the talented Robin Veith is definitely coming back for more adventures with the Sterling Cooper gang. (Veith last season penned three segs: “The New Girl” and co-wrote with Weiner “A Night to Remember” and “The Mountain King.”) Robinveithwga

Veith (pictured right) was Weiner’s assistant nearly a decade ago when he first started writing the little spec that could. She bounced around a few jobs and was working in a behind-the-scenes role for a traveling circus when Weiner called her in 2006 to let her know the show was finally a go and she had a job if she wanted it.

Another “Mad Men” staffer getting a promotion for season three is Kater Gordon, who was the show’s writers assistant for season two and has been upped to staff writer this year. Gordon’s potential clearly impressed Weiner last season; Gordon was co-writer with the boss on the finale seg “Meditations in an Emergency.”
