I read an article recently that said these shows are a delayed response to the success of Mad Men. Apparently when Matt Weiner, creator of MM, originally shopped around the concept for the series, he had a hard time finding a buyer. Now that the series is approaching its 4th season and has won multiple awards, other networks are jumping on the bandwagon with their own spin on the '60s era. I can't imagine anyone will do it better than MM.Has anyone seen previews for the new show this fall called "Pan Am"? Looks like a throw-back to this book. Also one about Playboy bunnies. What's up with that? Why these Neanderthal bimbo shows all of a sudden?
