ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the television program "Mad Men," which will debut on July 19, 2007 on the AMC cable television network. The series is set in a fictional Madison Ave. advertising agency during the 1960s, a time when that business was far more unorthodox and freewheeling than in modern times. Veteran advertising figures from that period who have seen the program state it presents an exaggerated but not distorted picture of reality.
