Tonight's press tour event was a cocktail reception with members of the Directors Guild of America, where I ran into "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner, who unfortunately didn't have much more to say about his ongoing contract negotiations with Lionsgate than he did last night at the Golden Globes.
"I wish I had something to tell you," he said. "It will be decided, one way or the other, very soon. And I had an amazing year, and I love doing the show."
He said that he's not concerned about a potential late start to the writing process, since season two was also delayed by the writers strike. And he admitted that while he hasn't done any actual writing yet, "I'll be honest with you. You're writers. I think about it all the time."
