Star World Premiere HD to bring the latest season of “Mad Men” to India

MUMBAI: Committed to bringing the latest American shows to India, STAR World Premiere HD has announced that it will be bringing the final, seventh season of the award-winning series “Mad Men” to its Indian viewers.  The highly acclaimed drama series is known to have garnered a huge following in India and will air on 14th April, 2014.


An American television period drama set in the 1960s, “Mad Men” has received widespread critical acclaim, particularly for its historical authenticity, visual style, costume design, acting, writing, and directing, and has been the recipient of many awards, including fifteen Emmy Awards and four Golden Globes. It was the first basic cable series to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series, winning in the category for the first four seasons in succession. It was recently ranked seventh in the list of the 101 best-written TV series of all time by the Writers Guild of America.


The protagonist of the series is the inimitable Madison Avenue advertising executive Don Draper (Jon Hamm). The series revolves around him and also focuses on the people in his life, both in and out of the office. Season Six ended with Draper in a deteriorated state, forced to take a leave of absence from his work.


Slated to premiere on 14th April in India, the show will enter its final season, which will consist of 14 episodes airing in two parts. The second half of the season is scheduled to air in the US in 2015.


Of the final season, creator and Executive Producer Matthew Weiner said, “We plan to take advantage of this chance to have a more elaborate story told in two parts, which can resonate a little bit longer in the minds of our audience. The writers, cast and other artists welcome this unique manner of ending this unique experience.”


Created and executive produced by Matthew Weiner, Mad Men stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Jessica Paré, Rich Sommer, Aaron Staton, Robert Morse, Kiernan Shipka, Jay Ferguson and Christopher Stanley. Scott Hornbacher and Janet Leahy also serve as Executive Producers and Semi Chellas is Co-Executive Producer.


The season opener is written by Matthew Weiner and directed by Scott Hornbacher. The series is produced by Lionsgate.


Catch the excitement only on Star World Premiere HD on 14th April at 10pm.
