Critically acclaimed ‘Mad Men’ acquired by CTV

The critically adored TV series "Mad Men" – about a group of ambitious ad executives working in New York in 1960 – is coming to CTV.

The network says it has acquired the rights to seasons 1 and 2 of the one-hour show, which originally aired on AMC. "Man Men" was created by Matthew Weiner, a writer and producer on "The Sopranos."

Starring John Hamm and January Jones, the show has a unique look which perfectly captures the time period in which it is set. It has received a slew of award nominations and has appeared on various Top 10 lists.

"It’s fitting that this acquisition comes just days after CTV broadcast the series finale of The Sopranos, which we first brought to conventional television in 2000," said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. "With creator Matt Weiner, there’s a real pedigree evident in Mad Men that originates directly from The Sopranos. Weiner’s years on The Sopranos has manifested in the experience he brings to this next, great, big buzz show."
