Set in the 1960s, Mad Men follows the complicated personal and professional lives of those who work at the Sterling Cooper advertising agency in New York City.
Its ensemble cast includes Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Christina Hendricks, Vincent Kartheiser and January Jones.
The show won a huge number of award throughout its run, including two BAFTAs and several Emmys, and is widely considered one of the best TV shows of all time.
