Was Pan Am TV Show Cancelled too Soon?

11 January 2015

Pan Am was an television series created by writer Jack Orman, and named after the iconic Pan American World Airways. It starred Christina Ricci, Michael Mosley, Karine Vanasse, Mike Vogel, Kelli Garner and newcomer Margot Robbie. The series featured the pilots and stewardesses of the airline as it operated in the early 1960s at the beginning of the commercial Jet Age. Despite all the exotic destinations featured on the show, principal shooting was done on a back lot in Brooklyn, and other shots are done around New York City. All subway scenes were filmed at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn. The show premiered on September 25, 2011, but after fading US audience figures and negative reviews, ABC decided to cancel it after just one season. But was it cancelled too soon?

In May 2012, Sony Pictures Television had conversations with Amazon about picking up the series for a second season because of its international success. Unfortunately, neither side were reach a deal and the series was officially ended on June 20, 2012.

The Facebook page for the TV series is still online and comments from fans are continuously added, but there is still no sign of the series returning to the small screen. Many fans believe that the time slot giving to the show was the wrong one and that the show was not given enough time to build up a fan-base. Since appearing in the show, Margot Robbie has had great success in Hollywood starring in the British romantic comedy "About Time" and as the leading lady in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf of Wall Street" alongside Leonardo DiCaprio. Future film projects for the young actress include Suite Francaise, Focus, Z for Zachariah, Tarzan and Suicide Squad.
