Emmys: Mad Men's Matt Weiner on January Jones' Pregnancy and the Story Behind "The Suitcase"
Let's get it out of the way: Yes, Mad Men executive producer Matt Weiner has a plan to deal with January Jones' pregnancy, and no, he doesn't want to talk about it yet.
Mad Men received a leading 19 Emmy nominations among scripted series, and the show's writing staff is in the middle of breaking Episode 6 of the delayed fifth season — which means by now, a decision about Jones' baby bump, and what it means for Betty, has been made. But, per usual, Weiner is keeping all details on lockdown. "I'm not going to say what I'm going to do, but I am going to have to do something! So, that's all I can say. It's really, I mean, you'll have to watch the show," he says. "It was two choices really: Either I hide it or I'm gonna go with it. I made a decision. She told me before the world knew, so I had some time to think about it. The real thing is, she's so cute! She looks great. She looks so great! It's very disappointing."
