Fan AAF-Fort Worth on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for a chance to win tickets to An Evening With A Mad Man, featuring Matthew Weiner, the creator and executive producer of AMC’s award-winning drama series Mad Men, on January 14, 2010, at the Casa Mañana in Fort Worth. Tickets range in price from $35 to $85 and can be purchased now at www.madmenfortworth.com.
Prior to Mad Men, which is set in the ruthlessly-competitive world of Madison Avenue advertising executives of the 1960s, Weiner was executive producer and writer on The Sopranos, HBO’s critically acclaimed drama series. The show garnered him an Emmy nomination with co-writer Terence Winter. Weiner’s credits also include a 2007 Writers Guild Award (TV) and a 2005 PGA Golden Laurel Award, as well as stints working on various television series such as The Naked Truth, Becker, and Andy Richter Controls the Universe.
AAF-Fort Worth’s centennial celebration will begin at 6:30 pm with a cocktail reception complete with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. The program will start at 7:30 with a brief historical perspective of AAF-Fort Worth, and then Matthew Weiner will take the stage to detail the development of Mad Men and its characters.
“It’s not often you turn 100 so we wanted to do something truly special,” said Jason Parker, AAF-Fort Worth president. “Considering our organization focuses on advertising, we thought Matthew Weiner would be the perfect person to help us celebrate.”
