Mad Men starts filming this week

Yesterday, to be exact. Rich Sommer (Harry) is Twittering about it, and Variety has a story.

The Variety piece says that AMC has "delayed" the show until August 16, but I don't think it's really a delay since the show just started filming this week. Who wants them to rush things? Sure, it's a month later than usual (the show usually premieres in July) so I guess it's a delay, in general, but contract negotiations with Matthew Weiner and other things factored into that. It's still pretty much on target with its season opener, though the show will now go even deeper into the regular seasons of the major networks. The show remains in its Sunday night at 10PM slot.

When we last left the Drapers and the gang at Sterling Cooper, Betty told Don she was pregnant, Peggy told Pete about the baby (and then Pete sat in his office holding a rifle - yikes), and the ad agency merged with a British company (though Duckie didn't get what he wanted). I'm wondering what year the season will open with. The first season started in 1960 but the second season was set in 1962.

This is great news. I'm pretty sure I read some where that every season is 2 years after the previous, for a total of 5 seasons. So this should be around 1964.
