The Townsman reports on Maria and George Mastras, siblings from Wellesley who are writing for TV shows in Hollywood. Maria is writing for AMC’s “Mad Men,” and George for “Breaking Bad.” Their mom Athena shares a few colorful ideas of her own with the Townsman:
“Hollywood’s very cutthroat, and there’s lots of nepotism,” she said. “Maria and Andre [her husband] don’t get the proper credit for their scripts.”
Athena, a nurse, may not be in the writing business, but she has her opinions. “‘Mad Men’ needs more action and ‘Breaking Bad’ is too dark for me,” she said.
