Where Is Pan Am Headed Next? The girls Reveal Destinations, Twists and Mile-High Passions

There is so much to love about ABC’s Sunday drama Pan Am, and we’re giving you first-class access to this season’s plot-twists and love interests. (Be warned, we’re going to be experiencing some slight turbulence via airplane puns.)

We recently went to the set of Pan Am and talked to the ladies about what life was like for those stewardesses in 1963: the adventures, the men, and of course the fashion. Plus, the always-adorable Christina Ricci reveals how she’s fooling all of America…

“I’m actually not tall enough to be a Pan Am flight attendant, so the other girls wear kitten heels on the flight and I wear full high heels to try and trick the audience,” Ricci tells us with a smile. Quite the sinister and evil minx, right? Well, she certainly fooled us!

If you’ve been following Pan Am like we have, then you already know that the foursome has been to London, Paris, and Berlin. So the only question left is: Where will they be landing later this season?

Margot Robbie, who plays newbie flight attendant Laura, reveals to us that Pan Am will be jet-setting to Rome at the time of the second Vatican Council. “There are a lot of nuns and priests on the plane with us, and there’s a funny storyline with this passionate couple in a lavatory.” Robbie says, “Laura is stuck with all that, so it’s really funny.”

Pan Am slips further….

Ratings slip futher down, but I think its still pulling a good amount, as I said they need to put it on at a different time or as iv seen mentioned in a comment, put it on in an earlier timeslot as people seem to forget shows in a later timeslot. And usually I tape shows that are past 9:30, so there could be more people watching it! So they need to think of these options, they dont try hard enough, they seem to give up on the slow rating shows to easily.

ABC’s “Pan Am” slipped to 5.89 million viewers and a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49.

Lets just pray they keep this show going!

“Pan Am” takes a dive

Unfortunately the ratings have dropped again! You have to consider ‘Desperate Housewives’ also dropped in rating plus I think 6.4million viewers is still pretty good! Lets hope ABC doesnt put its future on the line! I love the show and not for just Margot but I like the whole cast plus the story lines! Plus the 3rd episode had a bit of historic value and was one of the best episodes so far!

“The ABC dramas took some serious hits in the adults 18-49 demographic, with new series Pan Am dropping 27% to a 1.9 rating/5 share and 6.4 million viewers, according to preliminary ratings.”

And maybe make this as an idea……maybe put it on another night, Pan Am has alot of competition on Sundays, for EG: The Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, CSI & the iconic ’60 minutes’!!

‘Pan Am’ Picked Up by Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1

ABC’s period airline drama starring Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie and Michael Mosley is also slated for air in the U.K., France, Canada, Spain, Japan and Australia.

Pan Am was one of the hottest U.S. shows out of this year’s L.A. Screenings and has already sold to most big international markets, with BBC2 taking the series for the U.K., TF1 on board for France, CTV handling Canada, Spanish rights going to pay channel Canal+, Imagica BS taking Japan and Nine Network airing the show in Australia.

Pan Am had a solid series launch, bowing to some 11 million viewers and a 3.1 share. Ratings for episode 2, which aired last Sunday, slipped to 7.7 million and a 2.6 share of the 18-49 demo. NBC’s The Playboy Club’s, which, like Pan Am features a 60s period setting and sex-and-relationship-driven storylines, was axed by the network after underwhelming ratings – Playboy’s Club bowed to 5 million viewers but quickly slipped to 3.2 million by episode 3 – and protests from the Parents Television Council, which called on advertisers to boycott the show.

Margot Robbie gets her US TV wings

MARGOT Robbie has been cleared for takeoff. The former Neighbours star is only days away from the biggest flight of her life as ’60s retro TV drama Pan Am heads down the runway in the US.

Billed as Mad Men in the skies, the big-budget series romances the era of the jet age and the now-defunct US airline Pan Am and its stewardesses. It premieres in the US on September 25 and later on the Nine Network.

Unlike her record with departure lounges, this is one flight Robbie cannot miss. She is strapped in beside three other immaculately uniformed co-stars, including Hollywood favourite Christina Ricci.

“It’s just terrible, I miss flights all the time, more than I probably catch one,” a frank and glowing Robbie revealed to the Herald Sun during an exclusive chat on location in Long Island, New York, yesterday.

Robbie, 21, left Neighbours after three years and arrived in Los Angeles for the aptly named pilot season at the beginning of this year.

After auditioning for the Charlie’s Angels reboot TV series, producers Sony Television told her they’d prefer her for Pan Am.

“So I picked up a script and I went, ‘I love it, it’s amazing’,” she said.

Margot Robbie is up, up and away in new show Pan Am.

Margot Robbie

FORMER Neighbours star Margot Robbie is busy filming her first US gig as a sexy air stewardess on the ’60s-era series Pan Am, dubbed “Mad Men in the sky”.

Robbie, who plays a stewardess/beauty queen, recently revealed the female cast had to wear super-tight girdles to give them that retro hourglass look.

“The girdles make you walk a certain way,” she said. “I don’t know how women in the 1960s did it. I don’t know how women got dressed by themselves.”

The glam role is tipped to make the former Melbourne girl a major star, with Pan Am scheduled to air on ABC in the US in a coveted timeslot.

Television Critics Association press tour brings buzz for ‘Pan Am’.

A long time ago, getting on a plane was considered an adventure — of the pleasant kind — and ABC’s “Pan Am” (Sept. 25) wants you to sit back, relax and remember when flight attendants were gorgeous, passengers were well-dressed, and everyone had manners.

That ’60s world, says star Christina Ricci, was new and exciting, and she tries to maintain that excitement.

“These stewardesses were looked at as really glamorous symbols,” she says. “We have so much pride in welcoming these passengers on the plane, and they have so much pride in traveling.”

The goal, says producer Jack Orman, is to create a show that is “sweeping and epic and wish-fulfilling.” And one of their wishes clearly is to not be compared to its famous contemporary, AMC’s “Mad Men.”

“Television is just execution,” says producer Thomas Schlamme. “It’s not the time period it takes place in … It has nothing to do with ‘Mad Men.’ We just hope our show is executed in a wonderful way.”

Unlike “Men,” “Pan Am” is focused on women, a crew of flight attendants headed by Ricci. And unlike “Men,” the show has a secret-agent component: An attendant becomes a carrier for the CIA.

“We’ve done some research on this,” Orman says. Pan Am “had a very cozy relationship with the State Department … We weave it in, I think, pretty effectively.”

As the pilot shows, the women who worked for Pan Am were very tightly controlled. There were restrictions on weight, dress and their personal lives, all to help Pan Am sell an image of ideal beauty.

Still, says Ricci, former employees she talked to have fond memories of a job that let them see the world when women’s opportunities were limited.

“What this sends is a message that these women were really free and in charge of their lives.”

ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ Will Stay True to the 1960s — With One Big Exception

Sorry the site hasnt been updated in awhile, there hasnt been anymore news till know plus I have either been busy or sick to upload more photos!

ABC’s new drama “Pan Am” is making a point of re-creating the mood of the 1960s, much in the way that the show it’s often compared to — AMC’s “Mad Men” — has succeeded in capturing the feel of that decade.

But “Pan Am” is making one big concession to more modern sensibilities: Despite the fact that smoking on Pan Am flights was a regular thing in the 1960s, the new show will not depict any of the principals smoking cigarettes on flights or in the terminals, reports Entertainment Weekly.

There will be some extras with cigarettes, but the stars, including Christina Ricci and Margot Robbie, won’t light up.

According to executive producer Thomas Schlamme, “It’s an enormous impressionable element. It’s the one revisionist cheat.”

In contrast to “Pan Am,” the 1960s characters on “Mad Men” smoke frequently.

“Pan Am” is set to premiere Sept. 25.
