He has been an active member of the entertainment industry since 1996.

According to sources, it is estimated that Matthew Weiner`s overall net worth is $25 million, an amount acquired through his writing talents, which are mostly represented in TV series, however, Matthew has also made his film-making debut with the film “Are You Here” (2013), which also added to his net worth.

 

Matthew Weiner Net Worth $25 Million

Matthew was raised in a Jewish family; his parents were highly educated people, with his father being a medical researcher and chair of the neurology department at the University of Southern California, and his mother had a law degree although didn’t work. Matthew could only expect the highest education for himself, and he went to the prestigious private The Park School of Baltimore for his elementary education, after which his family moved to Los Angeles, where he attended the Harvard School for Boys. Following the graduation, he studied history, literature and philosophy at the Wesleyan University, but didn’t finish and later enrolled at the University of Southern California School Of Cinematic Arts, where he earned an MFA degree.

His professional career began in 1996, when he was hired as a screenwriter for the TV series “Party Girl”, however the series had a short life span, and Weiner needed to find another engagement. He started knocking from door to door, and got a job on the TV series “The Naked Truth” (1995-1998). However, his first major achievement was working on the TV series “Becker” (1998-2004), the success of which propelled him further into the screen-writing business. These projects really started his net worth.

While working as a part of the “Becker” team, he wrote a script for “Mad Men”, and one name was hooked on the script – it was David Chase, a producer of TV series “The Sopranos”. Chase soon offered Weiner a job on “The Sopranos”, which Matthew gladly accepted. While working on “The Sopranos”, Matthew`s net worth grew immensely, since he won two Primetime Emmy Awards, working as a producer on the series. Matthew also made his acting debut in the series, in the role of Manny Safier in a few episodes, which also increased his net worth.

Matthew wanted to put his own show “Mad Men” into production status, and began to search for a network; he was rejected by almost every major TV network, including HBO and Showtime, but AMC accepted his script, and signed a contract for the first season, to consist of 13 episodes. The “Mad Men” turned out to be a major success, which became the main source of Matthew`s net worth in the following years. The show aired for eight full seasons, from 2007 until 2015.

Matthew won numerous awards for the show, including nine Primetime Emmy awards and three Golden Globes.

He has also tried himself as an actor, other than the already mentioned roles in “The Sopranos”, Matthew has also lent his voice to a Simpson`s episode “The Man In The Blue Flannel Pants” in 2011.

Regarding his personal life, Matthew has been married to Linda Brettler since 1991. Linda supported family, working as an architect before Weiner got his first job. Anyway, they are now one big family since the couple has four children and two of them have already tried themselves as actors, Charles Weiner and Marten Holden Weiner.

#Quote
1[on the whimsical departure of 'Bert Cooper' (Robert Morse) from "Mad Men"] The show is famous for being Byzantine, but I can't believe that someone singing 'The Best Things in Life Are Free' was up for conversation. That was EXACTLY what I was trying to say.
2The fiction of John Cheever has a voice filled with irony and comedy and pain that, at some level, I'm always seeking to emulate. His short stories present themselves as episodes of TV do - with plenty of story and flawed characters presented without judgment.
3[re mentor David Chase } I talked to him quite a bit about [Not Fade Away (2012)] and I'm a huge fan of it. David's process is so arduous to begin with. To explain the difference between the joy and the compulsion is really hard. When I was in North Carolina, and David was finishing his movie, I spoke to him on the phone, and I talked to my wife afterwards and she said, 'You guys just keep sticking your neck out there.' My wife's an architect, so she definitely has a very high-risk artistic profession and she gets the idea that you're really sensitive, you really care what people think, you have a low threshold for criticism. It's like asking why people do heroin when they know it will kill them. I gotta give up at some point.
4I was watching the Oscars, and I saw Jennifer Lawrence [fall] on the steps, and I thought: That was the perfect acceptance speech. How do you avoid the envy and appearing arrogant? How do you say the perfect thing, now that you're not an underdog anymore? I don't think she did it on purpose, but you see that and see how she behaves, and you're like, it could not go any better than that. If I was writing an acceptance speech, I would have it start with someone falling off the steps.
5[re Mad Men (2007)] When the season ends, that's the end of the show for me. I'm out of stuff. I never know what's going to be the tension in between the seasons. I didn't know that after Season 3 the audience would not be convinced that Don was divorced. As soon as I heard, "Will he get divorced?" I'm like, well, I guess they don't know. That's the tension. "Will he start a new agency?" I guess that's the tension. What I start hearing over the break starts to inform where I start the next year.
6[re The Sopranos (1999)] The casting of Gandolfini is very important because he allows us, because of his natural charisma, to enjoy all those fantasies of power that we wish we had. We love Tony because he has all of our animal appetites. Everyone would love to walk into a room and pick the biggest sandwich and take the best chair and have sex with the best-looking women. But at home he has the same life that we do. You can't get any respect at home! That's just the way it is.
7Mad Men (2007) is non-judgmental about human behavior. These people do a lot of what we would consider unlikable and unpleasant things. We all do. Rather than lying to you about human behavior, even though there's plenty of wish-fulfillment in the show, it acknowledges that it's hard to be a person. I think that's a part of what resonates with audiences.
8Where do I put ourselves in the history of television? I will put myself and the show under the category of 'very lucky'.
9[re_Mad Men (2007) We're on the landscape in a permanent way.That is nice to hear. I'm in the entertainment business, where you're only as good as your last show. I'm very aware of the transient nature of the audience and the business itself. Will we be in the books that list shows that won awards? Probably. Will there be some conversation about the show in the future? I hope so. I mean, my kids know who Columbo (1971) is, and that was a long time ago.
10[on the National Public Radio program "Fresh Air with Terry Gross," describing how a personal crisis of his was the inspiration for his creation of Mad Men (2007)] My inspiration for writing this piece--the first moment of interaction with really where Don was--was: I was 35 years old; I had a job on a network sitcom; it was rated number nine (which means I was basically in Major League Baseball for my job--there's 300 people in the country that have this job, and I had one). I had three children, and I was like what--this incredible life--you know, I was like, 'What is wrong with me? Why am I unhappy? Why is there so much going on in my head that I can't express to other people because it's all awful? And what is enough? And I'm going to die one day.' And I'm looking at it and saying, 'This is it?' It could be an excuse to behave very badly.
