Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner was in Paris recently to accept the Vermeil Medal of Honor from Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe's cultural deputy.
Christina Hendricks and John Slattery, co-stars of the hit U.S. TV show, accompanied Weiner to celebrate the recently launched (in France) Sundance Channel.
The small Hotel de Ville gathering was followed by an exclusive cocktail for Rainbow Media Execs in Paris's 17th Arrondissement's newest Hotel Royal Parc Monceau.
During France's Cesar Award Month (the French equivalent to the Oscars) there is ample opportunity to discuss Eco Productions and Green Sets of which Mad Men has been an exemplary model. But MadMen in Paris? They rolled out the Red Carpet...Not the Green Carpet this time. Tant Pis!!
