'Mad Men' Heads to Spain, Asia
Sundance Channel picks up rights to multiple seasons of the Emmy-winning AMC show for several international territories.
BERLIN -- Hola Don Draper! Matthew Weiner's Emmy-winning 60s-set series Mad Men is heading to Spain - and several other international territories - following a deal between Lionsgate and AMC/Sundance Channel Global. The agreement will see Sundance Channel premiere Mad Men in multiple countries, including Spain, where Season One bows this October. In Asia, the series will premiere in Singapore and Taiwain on Sundance and will air in HD for the first time on the group's Korean channel. Sundance will also premiere HD versions of Season Two in France and French-speaking Benelux. AMC, which airs Mad Men in the states, owns and operates the Sundance Channel, both its U.S. and global versions.
"We continue to be humbled and amazed at the wonderful reception we get from fans of the show all over the world," said Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner. "Mad Men has found a global audience that continues to enjoy the adventures of Madison Avenue in the Sixties."
Mad Men has won the Outstanding Drama Emmy the past three years in a row and is the show to beat again this year, where it leads the drama series race with 19 nominations.
