Matthew Weiner ’87, the creator of the TV series “Mad Men” won two Emmy awards at The Emmy Awards ceremony Sept. 20. Weiner won for best drama and writing.
According to a Sept. 21 New York Times article, Weiner attributed the success of his show to the lack of interference from the businessmen who finance it. (AMC, a cable channel, only recently began scheduling original series.) “I may be the only person in this room who has complete creative freedom,” he said in accepting the award.
