'Mad Men' Creator: 'There Are Still No People of Color in Advertising'

Hints at Attempted Integration in Upcoming Season?

By Published on .

Check out this clip of an interview with Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner from Talk of Fame. He's fairly unapologetic about his portrayal of a lily-white ad universe. The show may be rife with historical inaccuracies, but the total lack of diversity is spot on. Weiner, though, hints that there may be some attempt to grapple with race at some point. And critics of the industry will just love his last line to the interviewer: "There are still no people of color in advertising."
