Mad Men is set in 1960s New York and airs on AMC. It's centered on Don Draper, an advertising executive with a shady past. He was married to Betty Draper and was rarely a loyal husband.
The drama is stylized and provocative, a symbol of its era. Along with Draper, Mad Men focuses on the overall, ruthlessly competitive world of Madison Avenue advertising. This is an ego-driven universe, one where key players make an art of the sell.
