Mad Men is almost over and AMC wants to end it right...by doing a unique on-air celebration! AMC will air a marathon of all seven seasons of the entire “Mad Men” series in consecutive order beginning on Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00pm ET/PT and leading into the “Mad Men” series finale on Sunday, May 17th at 10:00pm ET/PT. To pay special homage to “Mad Men,” all of AMC’s Sister Networks – BBC AMERICA, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv – are going to suspend regular programming and air a special message in honor of “Mad Men” timed to the series finale on AMC!
The all-new ‘Times of Your Life’ spot is launching during the five-day “Mad Men” on-air event. The beautiful retrospective piece is the final promo for the series, and it is set to the popular song that was also used in a 1970s Kodak ad campaign. It is presented from Don Draper’s perspective and features memorable, moving scenes from the series. The spot will debut on Wednesday, May 13th and will also serve as the curtain raiser for the final episode, airing immediately prior to the series finale on Sunday, May 17th.
Wait, there's more! AMC is also going to air vintage promos from past seasons of the series, celebrity fan tributes, and interview footage from recent “Mad Men” red carpet events. In addition to all of that, spots showcasing important first moments from the series will air in between episodes, as well as a sequence of “Madvertising” vignettes – facts and famous quotes about the advertising industry!
