Matthew Weiner, creator and executive producer of “Mad Men,” the award-winning series on AMC, admits he’s a control freak to the New York Times Magazine. Weiner had the idea for the series, writes the episodes, haggles over its $2.3 million per episode budget and approves every actor, costume, hairstyle and prop now that he’s a Hollywood-style overnight sensation, the magazine says. Meanwhile, the show is inspiring the real, current denizens of Madison Avenue, the Times says.
