With the sixth season of Mad Men just weeks away from launch, Lionsgate has revealed that its hit series will be introducing its first Middle Eastern character.
Fadi Noor, a ‘smooth Lebanese sales guy with an eye for the ladies,’ will join Don Draper and the team at ad agency Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And producers promise that the well-groomed Beirut boy will be a real cat among the pigeons.
“Fadi will be putting a touch of Middle Eastern spice into series six,” revealed executive producer Scott Hornbacher in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“His open-shirted, well-perfumed style causes a bit of a stir among the suits and ties. But when they discover his fondness for a cigarette and a bit of low-level sexual harassment, they know that he’s Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce material!’
While producers are remaining tight-lipped about plotlines, it is believed that the new season will move into the 1970s, with the ad agency gaining new clients including a big hair gel manufacturer.
“Let’s just say that when Fadi hears about that, things get messy!” hinted Hornbacher.
