MAD Men, the stylish, multi-award winning and internationally acclaimed TV series from the writer and executive producer of The Sopranos, returns to DVD and Blu-ray for a third award-winning season on April 26, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

Emmy and Golden Globe winner for Outstanding Drama two years in a row Mad Men is back for a third series of one scandalous surprise after another! 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 ad-agency Sterling Cooper.

Don and the rest of the equally ambitious and merciless young ad-executives are contending with a world on the brink. As they prepare for the agency’s 40th anniversary, Betty has her baby but Don finally reveals his true identity – what does this mean for their troubled marriage?

Welcome to Mad Men – a shocking portrait of a time that was anything but innocent. Nothing is as sexy. Nothing is as provocative. Nothing is as it seems…

Also starring Elisabeth Moss (The West Wing), Jon Slattery (Sex & The City, Desperate Housewives) and Vincent Kartheiser (Angel), Mad Men has garnered numerous awards, including a BAFTA TV Award for the ‘International’ category (2009), three Golden Globes® for ‘Best Television Series – Dreama’ (2008, 2009 and 2010), nine Emmys, an RTS Programme Award (2009), and a Screen Actors’ Guild for Outstanding Performance by an ensemble in a Drama Series (2010).

The 13 episode DVD is packed with featurettes and audio commentaries on key episodes, offering unmissable insights into the world of Mad Men Season 3.

The Blu-ray release also offers additional material, including two audio commentaries from key cast and crew on each episode.

Also available to buy on April 26 is the Mad Men Premium Limited Edition Triple Pack box set – the ultimate purchase for true fans – containing all 39 episodes from the three series of the award-winning show that critics have hailed as one of TV’s best-ever dramas.

This 9 disc set comes in a stylish presentation box priced at £59.99 RRP for DVD and £79.99 RRP for Blu-ray, and is packed with bonus material, including featurettes and audio commentaries with the cast and crew.
