Matthew Weiner is sticking around. The acclaimed creator of the acclaimed series has finalized a new acclaimed deal with Lionsgate TV, ensuring his acclaimed presence behind the wheel for two more years of acclaimed storytelling.
For the retarded, Mad Men is the critically acclaimed show on AMC. It's about as depressing as BSG, with aesthetically pleasing clothes instead of guns and explosions. It also makes you really want a whiskey and a cigarette.
Weiner's deal involves a seven-figure salary, which is a polite hollywood-biz way of saying he is now officially rolling in it.
