A show about plane flight attendants? Or, er back when they were still called stewardess, were all women, and looked super hot? Yup, that’s the premise of the new ABC show “Pan Am”. Gotta say, I wasn’t one of those people waiting with bated breath for the show, but it certainly has a great cast of lovely ladies, and the tone of the show is very guilty pleasure-heavy. Season 1 promo images, poster, and preview trailer below. “Pan Am” takes off September 25th, 2011.
Passion, adventure 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 a thrilling and highly original new series, “Pan Am”.
In this modern world, air travel represents the height of luxury, and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are sleek and 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.
These pre-feminist women form a powerful sisterhood, as they enjoy the rare opportunity to travel outside the country-something most women in this age can only aspire to-and one of the few career options that offers them empowerment and respect.
Starring Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie, Michael Mosley, Karine Vanasse, Mike Vogel, and Kelli Garner.
