Deadline and other sources are reporting that AMC, Mad Men creator Matt Weiner and Lionsgate are locked in negotiations over (what else?) money. Specifically an increased salary for Weiner and higher licensing fee for Lionsgate. The problem is, the negotiations are causing such a delay in production that we may not see a new episode of Mad Men until 2012. I don’t know about you, but I can’t go a year without seeing Pete Campbell’s Bitchface again.
So I urge you to sign this petition to end negotiations and begin production posthaste. You can find the petition here. What impact will an online petition have? I have no idea. But it can’t hurt. If you still need some convincing, here’s a visual aid.
1. Paul Kinsey Ain’t Dead
(He said so in this interview!)
2. But Joan’s Horrible Rapist Husband Might Be
(We can only hope…)
3. Alison Brie Could Wear Something This Amazing Again
4. That Wench Betty Draper Will Surely Get Her Comeuppance At Some Point
5. These Things
(You knew it was coming.)
6. That Guy
(Aren’t you impressed I held out this long?)
Joanna Robinson likes her scotch neat, her secretaries buxom and her misogyny dressed in a nice, sharp suit.
