Pasadena--AMC will begin airing the final seven episodes of its drama Mad Men April 5, the network announced during its Television Critics Association winter tour presentation here Saturday.
“Mad Men is the show that put AMC on the map. Period. It is impossible to overstate the impact it has had on AMC, and I would argue, this era of television,” said Charlie Collier, AMC president in a statement.
The network also announced it will partner with BBC for the development of a new miniseries, The Night Manager. The series will star Hugh Laurie (House) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse, Midnight in Paris) will star in the mini-series, a television adaptation of John le Carré’s novel of the same name.
AMC will also chronicle the roots of the mob with a special mini-series Making of The Mob: New York. The miniseries, produced by Stephen David Entertainment (The World Wars, The Men Who Built America) will consist of eight, one-hour episodes premiering in second quarter 2015.
