“Mad Men” Writers visit Bahrain
“Mad Men” Writers Visit Bahrain
From September 25-26 Andre and Marie Jacquemetton, the writers/producers of the hit television show “Mad Men,” visited Bahrain as part of Embassy Manama’s Public Diplomacy programming. They met with hundreds of local fans of Mad Men, scriptwriters and students to discuss scriptwriting techniques for television and film.
The producers focused on techniques for aspiring Bahraini authors and highlighted ways they can develop their skills in scriptwriting. They also discussed bringing an entrepreneurial approach to their writing and creative work. The Public Affairs Section organized discussion sessions at Ibn Khuldoon National School, the American Studies Center at the University of Bahrain, University College of Bahrain and Al Riwaq Art Space.
The Jacquemetton’s were impressed by the interaction and conversations they had with a variety of audiences across Bahrain, and excited to see how popular the series was in the country.
