Matthew Weiner Dishes on What He Wanted for Mad Men Finale

He also showed a page from the finale's script which had a number of hand written revisions on it.


Matthew Weiner has revealed some of the tings which he had hoped to do for the Mad Men series finale which aired two weeks ago. He spoke about it at a panel at the Writers Guild Foundation event “Inside the Writers Room with Mad Men.”

“I had a ton of doubts, ” Weiner said during the panel while surrounded by a bevy of Mad Men writers. He said that he spent Mad Men’s final weeks, “in my house covering my face. I just didn’t know. I didn’t want to end the show in an argument. You know, you can’t defend yourself.”

About writing the finale Weiner said, “I go though the same process every time: I have an idea; I think it’s great; I show it to everybody [on staff]; I doubt it as I’m watching them listen to it; and then we’re about to do it and I’m like ‘I don’t know if I want to do it, ’ and they’re like ‘No, it was great.’ And then I moved out of my office in December and I spent basically the next six months with my confidence in everything we did slowly eroding.”

He also showed a page from the finale’s script which had a number of hand written revisions on it.

Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican tweeted a picture of it.
