A 'Mad Men' Spinoff Set in Los Angeles?
When AMC's groundbreaking series "Mad Men" ends next year, what more could viewers ask for than MORE "MAD MEN." At least a couple of the men, who are rumored to be possible central characters in a possible spinoff. Oh, the possibilities!
The grist for the rumor mill comes courtesy of E!, who spoke to actor Kevin Rahm, who plays Ted on the popular drama. Rahm admitted:
"I keep working a spinoff angle. The spinoff is me and Pete (Vincent Kartheiser), The Odd Couple in L.A. but they're both dirty. Two Felixes."
Network execs, are you listening? No word on if "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner is on board with the concept.There have been a few ideas for the expansion of the "Mad Men" empire kicking around, including said spinoff. How about "Mad Women"? Or one all about Betty and Sally (to name one of a few tossed out there by Vanity Fair)?
In the meantime, the seventh and final season of "Mad Men" is prepping to go into production; it won't be until next year though that we learn who really ends up setting up shop in L.A.
