Mad Men: Season 2 - Preview (DVD & Blu-ray)
Preview by Jack Foley
MAD Men, the internationally acclaimed series from the writer and executive producer of The Sopranos, returns to DVD and Blu-ray for a second award-winning season on July 13, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
It’s party time in New York in the 1960s, and powerful and manipulative advertising agencies are mobilising the American public en-masse.
The men and women of the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency are at the top of their game playing in the ivy leagues of their cut-throat industry.
Led by master manipulator and renowned ladies’ man Don Draper (Golden Globe® winning Jon Hamm), this glamorous, sophisticated, smoke enveloped drama follows the sexual exploits and social lives of the ruthless and fiercely competitive professionals of the Madison Avenue based agency.
In an era when workplace morals, smoke-free environments, sexual equality and ethnic diversity were merely figments of the imagination, we see the sharp end of the dog-eat-dog world of high-end advertising in action.
Hot shot egotist Don Draper battles to stay one step ahead of the equally ambitious and merciless young executives desperate for a piece of the action. Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing), Jon Slattery (Sex & The City, Desperate Housewives) and Vincent Kartheiser (Angel), co-star as part of the team at Sterling Cooper Advertising, fighting it out in a world fuelled by ambition, greed and sex.
Mad Men Season 2 was awarded a BAFTA TV Award for the International category, following a phenomenal awards season run including two Golden Globes®, two Emmys, three RTS Programme Awards, and a Screen Actors’ Guild for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
The DVD is packed with featurettes and audio commentaries on key episodes, offering unmissable insights into the world of Mad Men Season 2. The Blu-ray boasts a wealth of additional material, including two audio commentaries from key cast and crew on each episode.
