Yesterday we told you that Lynn Shelton (Humpday) directed last week’s “Mad Men.” Today, you can read an interview with Shelton discussing the show’s directing and writing process, how she got the gig and her excitement about getting to direct one of her favorite shows. Executive Producer Scott Hornbacher approached her after seeing Humpday, and “by summer Shelton was on the ‘Mad Men’ L.A. set, soaking up the 1960s atmosphere. Because she hadn’t worked in TV before, she spent extra time on the set before beginning work on her episode, shadowing veteran ‘Mad Men’ director Phil Abraham.” Remembers Shelton, “I was such a super fan of the show, I was beside myself.” Follow the link above to read the full interview or go here to read The Stranger’s interview.
