Yes yes yes yes! ABC has picked up the Pan Am TV show pilot for its 2011-2012 season. There's no set premiere date yet, but rest assured we'll keep you posted. All we know is that Pan Am is due to air on Sunday nights at 10pm, after Desperate Housewives. The workplace drama has been billed as the next Mad Men, and with Christina Ricci starring amidst all the sex and intrigue of Pan Am myth, this could be right.
We especially love the incorporation of New York-JFK's Terminal 3 in the promo cast shot above. Once upon a (far more glamorous) time, Terminal 3 was better known as the "Worldport," Pan Am's UFO-styled HQ in the Big Apple. These days it's used by Delta and scheduled for demolition in the few few years. We're now wondering if the new ABC show will have architecture and retro buffs out at JFK visiting it before its date with destiny.
