'Mad Men' Creator Matthew Weiner Dishes On His Upbringing, Jon Hamm And Those Nasty Negotiations With AMC

Mad Men

We’re not getting new episodes of “Mad Men” until January 2012.

So, an hour-long interview between creator Matthew Weiner and his older sister on her show “Media Mayhem”? Pretty much catnip.

Over the course of the discussion, Weiner and his sister, writer Allison Hope Weiner, talk about the creation of the show, the life of a creative mind, Weiner’s difficult negotiations with AMC and the ’60s style of their parents.

We pulled out a few of the interview’s best quotes, but if you’re a fan of the “Mad Men,” it’s worth watching its entirety.

Here's the whole 68-minute-long interview, via Deadline.com
