    "Mad Men," the smash hit AMC show about the world of advertising on Madison Avenue in New York in the 1960s, is the most acclaimed TV series of its time. The sin, swagger and salesmanship of the plot has earned the show four Emmys for "Outstanding Drama Series," and it is heading into its fifth season. "Nightline" was granted exclusive access to the actors on set for behind-the-scenes tour.

    To play the dashing Don Draper, actor Jon Hamm said he takes cues from memories of his late father. "I remember going in my Dad's closet and seeing row upon row of suits, probably 70 suits. Who has 70 suits now? It's kind of a lost part of dressing up now, but I think the show's kind of bringing it back a little bit," Hamm said.

    John Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling in "Mad Men," is another powerful and dapper ad boss. "The clothes go a long way," he told ABC News' Chris Connelly. "It helps because you really can't breathe or slouch, or do anything but stand up straight if you want to breathe at all."

    In talking about "Mad Men's" fifth season, creator Matt Weiner was still humbled. "To think, yes the people who have the money trusted me enough to do it and yes, the people I have made it for understood it or appreciated it and yes, I got to do it," he said. "It's a very rare gift that I am absorbing." Shown here is the set for the fictional Sterling Cooper ad agency's creative space.

    Elisabeth Moss, who plays the wholesome, naïve Peggy Olson on "Mad Men," was only the second person to be cast for the show. She said when she first read for the part, creator Matt Weiner started crying after hearing his words come alive. Moss said she thought she had a terrible audition. "Oh my God, it sounded so awful. We're never going to get this made," she recalled thinking, with a laugh.

    Two staples in the fictional New York City advertising office of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, where "Mad Men" is set, are the constantly free-flowing alcohol and chain smoking. However the bottles aren't actually filled with booze.
