MAD MEN's Mad for MadAve's Journal!
Lights, camera, 1960!
We know of no other advertising trade journal that's ever been suggested as "recommended reading" by a national TV Network. Please let us know if Bravo or A&E begin urging their audiences to read AdAge.com anytime soon!
AMC knows great writing when then read it. Last week MAD MEN picked up the Writers Guild of America's WGA Awards for Best New Series of 2007! That's just one of the many industry awards it's received in the last year. To quote one of our readers, "AMC's just nailing it with their original series line up!!"
It's MAD MEN, all the time. And check out AMC's new MAD MEN Community Talk forum called, MAD MEN TALK where you can go to write your own blog posts about it!
According to AMC, "The Madison Avenue Journal strives to be "The New Yorker" of advertising by providing online social commentary and daily news for that industry. Throughout the show's first season, Madison Avenue Journal became a veritable treasure trove of MAD MEN coverage with episodic reviews, polls, analyses, and even a self-established MAD MEN Facebook group."
Much of the credit for this goes to Culture Editor, Kurt Brokaw, our culture conscience, tasked to knit together various connection points between advertising and literature, film and pop music. Also we would like to thank Mr. Clayton Neuman, Community Editor of AMCtv.com for this wonderful accolade.
Don't blink an eye if you see us roll out the red carpet and velvet rope on Madison Avenue this weekend. Just like every episode of MAD MEN and the Mad Ave Journal, you're seeing the real thing!
