Method to the 'Mad'ness


With this weekend's Emmy Awards, no one channel stands to win bigger than AMC, which garnered a personal-best 20 nominations, including 16 alone for the critically acclaimed series "Mad Men." This from a cable network that aired only black-and-white movies not too long ago. The job of contemporizing the former American Movie Classics belongs to Charlie Collier, who became AMC's executive vp and GM two years ago. He talked to The Hollywood Reporter about the evolution of the channel.
