Was there a struggle with how little Mad Men had to be "about," plot-wise? Much of today's television focuses on extraordinary people.
TV and film, in general… some of it is designed for escape, designed to satisfy the lack of justice that we feel in everyday life. We find heroes and we get to have the wish fulfillment of, for example, a woman who has it all, who talks tough and tells people where to go and, yeah, they fail sometimes. There's not a lot of that on the show. I give the example of how we try to make it less abstract by making it more like real life: If a young man runs into a beautiful woman at a party on Mad Men and she gives him her phone number and he writes it on a piece of paper and then he loses his coat, he will, on a normal TV show, end up figuring out how to find her. On Mad Men, he will never see her again.
Kendall Jenner, the 19-year-old model of the moment and social media darling, will appear in a new ad campaign for Calvin Klein’s #mycalvins Denim Series, a limited-edition, logo-driven offering inspired by athletic and urban streetwear.
“It was super fun,” said Jenner, in an interview Wednesday night. “It’s really exciting. Honestly, it has been my dream to be able to do something like that. Calvin Klein’s ad campaigns have always been so memorable.”
