All of the cast of 'Mad Men' will return for season six

Betty & Peggy Confirmed For ‘Mad Men’ Return…

January Jones, who plays Betty Draper, and Elizabeth Moss, who plays Peggy Olson in AMC series ‘Mad Men’ will return for season six, series creator Matthew Weiner has confirmed. Plot lines from season five, which saw Betty remain unhappily married to Henry Francis and Peggy leave the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce ad agency, prompted many to speculate the two leading ladies would not return as regular cast members. In an interview with TV Guide magazine, Weiner also revealed series six will jump to the late 60s, after the last season was set in the early part of the decade. All cast members, apart from Jared Harris, will return in the sixth season. ‘Mad Men’ will return to US screens on April 7, with Sky Atlantic airing the UK and Ireland premiere just two days later.

Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs Biopic Gets Theatrical Release… The Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher, has been confirmed for a US cinema release for April 19. Open Road Films has acquired the film and will release it in the month which marks the 37th anniversary of when Jobs founded Apple. Jobs passed away in 2011 after a long illness. The film, written by Matthew Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern, charts Jobs’s life from 1971-2001. There is no word yet on an Irish release.

Sky Living Announces Slate Of Original Commissions… Sky Living has announced four new original series for a 2013 production, including the Emily Mortimer-starring ‘Doll & Em’, which is a comedy series from King Bee Productions, ‘Trying Again’, an eight-part comedy from ‘Veep’ and ‘Peep Show’ writer Simon Blackwell, and ‘Reckless’, a five-part drama which will star former ‘Coronation Street’ actresses Katherine Kelly and Anne Reid. Tiger Aspect Productions' (Ripper Street) ‘Mount Pleasant’ will also return for a third season, starring another former ‘Coronation Street’ actress Sally Lindsay.
