From the creator of TV’s “ER” and Producer of “The West Wing” comes a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously meshed in a thrilling and highly original new series.
PAN AM is available on DVD March 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Starring Christina Ricci (Penelope), PAN AM takes you back to the Jet Age of 1963, when WWII and Korea are history, but a new Cold War is underway with the world poised on the brink of a cultural revolution, and everywhere, change is in the air.
Pan Am is the biggest in the luxury travel business, where the pilots are rock stars, and the stewardesses the most desirable women in the world. In their individual quests for adventure, the Pan Am crew experience opportunity and peril as they juggle their lives, loves, hopes and dreams while flying to glamorous destinations worldwide.
The show also stars Mike Vogel (The Help), Kelli Garner (Going the Distance), Margot Robbie (TV’s “Neighbours”), Michael Mosley (TV’s “Justified”) and Karine Vanasse (Polytechnique).
At Pan Am there’s Dean (Mike Vogel), a cocky, charismatic and ambitious new pilot – the first of a new breed not trained in war. A farm boy from a small rural town, Dean finds himself thrust into a leadership position at Pan Am far too young, but is eager to prove himself as the new face of the airline. On the sly, he’s dating Bridget (guest star Annabelle Wallis), a motherly beauty with a mysterious past. Co-pilot Ted (Michael Mosley) comes from wealth and privilege, but his powerful family is a blessing and a curse, and he has his own dark secrets. A rebellious bohemian, Maggie (Christina Ricci) turns into a buttoned up professional for work in order to see the world, trying to balance her hunger for life with her undefined ambitions. Also on this crew is flirtatious Colette (Karine Vanasse), who is the empathetic caretaker of the group, though she herself has a penchant for unavailable men. And finally there are the sisters, the spirited Kate (Kelli Garner) and her beauty queen younger sister, Laura (Margot Robbie), a runaway bride who recently fled a life of domestic boredom to take to the skies. Welcome aboard, and fasten your seat belts… Adventure awaits!
