Exec producer, 'Mad Men'

Matt Weiner, exec producer, “Mad Men”

“I don’t want to overpromise anything (going forward), but we took a gig risk at the end of last season and there’s lot of energy to the storytelling. It’s still challenging and terrifying. I don’t ever want to let up and waste expectations. I want every episode to be as good as the one before. I’ve been that way since the second episode of the show, even if it’s just me, my wife and the crew watching.”
