AMC mulled a Mad Men spinoff with Sally Draper or Peggy Olson
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Mad Men oral history, AMC considered a spinoff featuring a grown-up Sally Draper “Sally was the one character young enough that you could see her 30 or 40 years later,” says Lionsgate TV C.O.O. Sandra Stern. She adds: “There was a time we wanted a Peggy spin­-off, too, a la Better Call Saul, a minor character going off to L.A.” PLUS: John Slattery was ticked off he didn’t land the Don Draper role.
