“PAN AM”

Passion, jealousy and espionage... They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in this thrilling and highly-original new series.

In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are glamorous, the pilots are rock stars and the stewardesses are the most desirable women in the world. Not only are these flyboys and girls young and good looking, but to represent Pan Am they also have to be educated, cultured and refined. They’re trained to handle everything from in-air emergencies to unwanted advances – all without rumpling their pristine uniforms or mussing their hair. There’s Dean (Jonah Lotan) – a cocky, charismatic and ambitious new pilot – the first of a new breed not trained in the war. On the sly against company policy, he’s dating Bridget, a stunning beauty with a mysterious past. A rebellious bohemian, Maggie (Christina Ricci) turns into a buttoned up professional for work so she can see the world. Rounding out the crew are flirtatious Collette (Karine Vanasse), the adventurous Kate (Kelli Garner) and, finally, Laura (Margot Robbie) – Kate’s beauty queen younger sister, a runaway bride, who recently fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies.

“Pan Am” stars Christina Ricci (“Penelope”) as Maggie, Kelli Garner (“Going the Distance”) as Kate, Karine Vanasse (“Polytechnique”) as Colette, Margot Robbie (“Neighbours”) as Laura, Jonah Lotan (“24”) as Dean and Michael Mosley (“Justified”) as Ted.

Jack Orman (“ER,” “Men of a Certain Age,”), Tommy Schlamme (“The West Wing,” “Parenthood,”
“Mr. Sunshine”) and Nancy Hult Ganis (“Akleeh and the Bee”) are the executive producers of “Pan Am.” Orman is also the writer, with Schlamme directing. “Pan Am” is produced by Jack Orman Productions, Out of the Blue Entertainment and Shoe Money Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television.

One of their people came into my workplace a couple of weeks ago to ask my boss if they could rent some of our space for a day or two to use as a Brazilian prison. She was willing, they offered $5,000. They haven't been there yet, though.

The pilot took off! (sorry, couldn't resist) I loved it. VERY well shot, nice music, complicated enough. And the 4 main actresses were great, especially loved Colette.

Loved it. Think it ranks up there with American Dreams (the one that kicked the 60s drama phase off) and Mad Men as great 60s period dramas.

And. So far, Collette is my favorite too. Loved her.

Yes he is.

The standouts for me are Margot Robbie (Laura) and Karine Vanasse (Colette).

I had high hopes for this show, because the thought of a drama taking place in the past is very appealing to me. Unfortunately, the first episode was pretty boring. Pan Am was not helped by the fact that the show seems to have far too many primary characters.

And they need to make those FX shots just a tad better. A little too fake looking.
