The fifth season of Mad Men will debut in the UK just two days after its US premiere.
The AMC drama – which stars Jon Hamm and Christina Hendricks – will air on Sky Atlantic from March 27.
The new run will begin with two-hour premiere ‘A Little Kiss’, penned by series creator Matthew Weiner.
“There’s a time jump,” said Weiner. “There are some new people. Changes have happened off screen, and the audience will have to catch up with that. Even though Don (Hamm) ended up making this overture to Megan (Jessica Paré), and the audience felt sort of peculiar about it, so did the people in the office. That’s something that we play on.”
Weiner previously hinted that future episodes will include “a feeling of being in the midst of change”.
“There’s this sensation, which I think people have right now… there is just so much change going on,” the showrunner explained. “I don’t know if anybody else identifies with that, but that’s a big part of the season. Just trying to hold on.”
Following the addition of Sky Atlantic to Sky Go this week, customers will also be able to watch the new Mad Men episodes on an iPad and selected smartphones.
Jon Hamm will direct the third episode of the new season, while his co-star John Slatterywill also direct several instalments.
Mad Men returns to the UK on Tuesday, March 27 at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
In a rather surprising celebrity and brand pairing, “Mad Men” star Christina Hendricks has lent her coquettish voice to Baskin-Robbins ice-cream stores.
Ms. Hendricks is the voice-over talent for a campaign by Baskin-Robbins to remind customers that flavors, not toppings, are what matter. Above is the first of a flight of 15-second ads for the brand by its agency of about two years, Atlanta-based 22Squared. We’re told the spots will run on the following networks: ABC Family, Animal Planet, Bravo, Food Network, Nick @ Nite, Oxygen, Style, TLC, WE and WGN.
Ms. Hendricks, who plays the attractive office secretary Joan Harris and behind-the-scenes manager of the agency in “Mad Men,” follows in the footsteps of costars cashing in with brands. Jon Hamm –better known as Don Draper — is the voice of Mercedes-Benz, while John Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling and Ms. Hendricks‘ sometime love interest on the show, appears in Lincoln ads.
Strangely, Baskin-Robbins isn’t touting its new spokeswoman, and it’s unclear whether Ms. Hendricks will actually show up in the ads at some point. Perhaps they didn’t want her steaminess to melt all the product.
The PaleyFest’s annual TV series panels kick off March 2 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills with FX’s American Horror Story. Highlights include a Mad Men session on March 13, just more than a week before the AMC series returns for the start of its long-in-the-works Season 5.
