Before the first season of Mad Men premiered, many of us here at VFS couldn’t wait to see what the former Head of Writing for Film & Television Maria Jacquemetton was working on.
Since then, Mad Men has been featured everywhere from celebrity mags to The Atlantic to Banana Republic catalogues. It’s also won more Golden Globes, Emmys, and critical acclaim than you can shake a stick at.
All of this makes us particularly proud to learn that VFS Writing grad Amy Roy has been working on Season Five as a Producer’s Assistant! Generally speaking, her role is to help Maria and her writing partner/husband Andre achieve a number of daily production goals. We can’t say much more at this point, since all details surrounding the long-anticipated series return are being tightly guarded.
For now, you can get to know Amy a little more in a video we shot just before she graduated! It’s featured on the Writing for Film & Television program page.
