Kurt Sutter to Matthew Weiner: ‘Whore or Saint, Pick One’

Sutter and “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof don't sympathize with “Mad Men” creator

"Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter doesn't have much sympathy for fellow show runner Matthew Weiner in his negotiations over "Mad Men."

"You can't ask a network for 10 million, then bitch when they want to expand their ad revenue source," Sutter tweeted Tuesday. "Whore or saint, pick one."

Sutter, at the top of TheWrap's list of show runners worth following on Twitter, was referring to the $30 million Weiner has been offered for three more seasons of "Mad Men" in his negotiations with Lionsgate and AMC.

But Weiner has refused to give in to demands that he cut cast, slice two minutes from each show to allow for more ads, and work more product placements into the scripts.

"Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof, who joined Sutter on our list of show runners worth following, tweeted Tuesday that he also thinks Weiner is getting a good deal.

"Not that I'm sour grapes, but TEN MILLION DOLLARS a year for 13 episodes of a single show seems pretty fair, no? #SOURGRAPES" he tweeted.

Why aren't the show runners hanging in with Weiner? Maybe because Weiner doesn't tweet.
