MAD MEN, which begins shooting its seventh season this fall, is one of the most honored series in television history.  With its fourth consecutive Emmy® win for Outstanding Drama Series in 2011, it tied the all-time record for Emmy® wins in the category, joining an illustrious group of only three other shows in history that have achieved this milestone ( Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, The West Wing). The series has also won three consecutive Golden Globes® for Best Drama, along with a host of additional awards.  Set in New York in the 1960's, MAD MEN has riveted audiences with the seductive and intriguing world of Madison Avenue advertising and stars an outstanding ensemble cast, including Golden Globe® winner Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, Jessica Paré, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Robert Morse, Jay Ferguson, Chris Stanley, Ben Feldman and Kiernan Shipka. Produced by Lionsgate, the series is created, written and executive produced by Emmy ® and Golden Globe ® winner Matthew Weiner in association with Weiner Bros.  Joining Weiner are executive producers Scott Hornbacher, André and Maria Jacquemetton and Janet Leahy.    

NURSE JACKIE, which was recently renewed for its sixth season to premiere in 2014, stars Edie Falco as a strong-willed, fiercely loyal, deeply dedicated but very flawed emergency nurse working in a New York City hospital.  The role brought Edie, a four-time Emmy® winner, her first Lead Actress Emmy® for a comedy in the first season of the series. Also starring are Eve Best, Merritt Wever, Paul Schulze, Dominic Fumusa, Anna Deavere Smith, Peter Facinelli, Ruby Jerins and Mackenzie AladjemBobby Cannavale and Morris Chestnut were special guest stars in season five and Stephen Wallem, Betty Gilpin and Adam Ferrara were guest stars. Co-produced by Lionsgate and Showtime Networks, the series was created by Evan Dunsky and Liz Brixius & Linda Wallem and is executive produced by Clyde Phillips, Tom Straw, Richie Jackson and Caryn Mandabach.

NASHVILLE, which returns to ABC for its second season on September 25, is set against the backdrop of the Nashville music scene and stars Connie Britton as a country music legend eager to remain at the top of the charts and Hayden Panettiere as a rising young star.  Created by Academy Award®  winner Callie Khouri and executive produced by Dee Johnson, R.J. Cutler, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan, the series also stars Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Robert Wisdom, Chris Carmack, and Lennon and Maisy Stella.  The series is produced by Lionsgate, ABC Studios and Gaylord Entertainment.
