The Hollywood Reporter Names the 50 Power Showrunners of 2013
Breaking Bad may be grabbing buzz and collecting Emmy gold, but it was Weiner’s Mad Men that put AMC on the map in 2007. The Madison Avenue retro drama remains in the pantheon of great TV series, according to THR’s chief TV critic Tim Goodman, and it has earned the cable network 15 Emmys. In a bid for still more accolades, AMC execs recently announced that Mad Men’s final season of 14 episodes would be split in half. Weiner, 48, remains in control of a talent roster that includes Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss, all of whom are now coveted performers outside the (faux) walls of Sterling Cooper Draper Price.
