Looks like TNT is getting into the ad man game.

On Monday, the network also ordered 13 episodes of “Truth in Advertising,” a series produced by the Shephard/Robin Co. and the same team behind TNT’s biggest hit, “The Closer.”

Rather than a knockoff of AMC’s popular “Mad Men” — as might be assumed — “Truth” follows two ambitious, funny guys in a modern-day Chicago ad agency, Robin said. Conceived by Wright, the series is written by former admen Hunt Baldwin and John Coveny (“The Closer”).
