Matthew Weiner, creator of AMC’s “Mad Men,” sat down with Stephen Colbert to discuss the upcoming conclusion of the much-beloved TV drama. Oh, and it’s NOT ending because of 70s fashion, despite Colbert’s initial assumption.
In the video, Colbert tries to recap the series’ history for Weiner. Don smokes, he drinks and he “banged everything on the eastern seaboard,” Colbert decides. On a more serious note, Weiner discusses his view on the 60s, delving into why he chose to focus on the era.
