Meet the woman who brought you 'Mad Men' AND 'Breaking Bad'

Meet the woman who brought you 'Mad Men' AND 'Breaking Bad'


Christina Wayne was a creative. She started off as a music video director, but spent more than a decade as a screenwriter in L.A. One day, she got a call from a friend and ended up getting a script that had been sitting around on desks for eight years. Pretty much everyone in the industry had passed on it. It was Mad Men.

As we all eagerly await the arrival of Don/Dick and company's sixth season (less than 60 hours!), let Wayne explain how Mad Men came to be, how she's partly responsible for your love affair with Walter White and Breaking Bad, and what went into making Copper, the Gangs of New York-ish drama that she took with her when she left AMC.
