Hamm Now a Big Cheese
Actor named 'Mad Men' producer as part of deal inked last summer
While that Emmy still remains elusive, Jon Hamm has scored something else his fellow actors should be mad men and women over: a producer credit on "Mad Men."
According to TV Line, the three-year deal Hamm inked last summer with AMC and studio Lionsgate, included not only an eight-figure paycheck but all the creative and monetary benefits that come with producing a hit TV show.
This is the first time AMC has conferred this benefit. As part of the deal, Hamm will also get to direct an episode.
Season 5 of "Mad Men" premieres Sunday, March 25, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
