Most episodes of the AMC series Mad Men are directed by their in-house stable of regulars, but every now and then they open it up to outsiders. Last year, they got Barbet Schroeder to direct the poignant Kennedy assassination episode. Tonight, they’ve tapped Lynn Shelton, the Indie Spirit Award-winning director of Humpday, the bromantic comedy which premiered at Sundance. Shelton, by the way, has just signed on with Focus Features to direct an adaptation of Then We Came To The End, an adaptation of the Joshua Ferris novel that will be produced by Ted Hope and Anne Carey’s This Is That banner. It’s the story of a bunch of copy writers at a Chicago ad agency who face extinction when the dot com bubble bursts in 2001. Shelton also directs $5 Cover, an MTV webisode series that follows the trials and tribulations of 13 Seattle bands. The series premieres in November.
