'Pan Am', ABC Show, To Explore 1960s Flying Culture
According to ABC, it seems, they were. The network has ordered up episodes of "Pan Am", a retro-look at the glamor (and, presumably, downside) to being a flight attendant for Pan Am in the 1960s, Reuters reports.
The show will probably be based on some truths as the executive producer, Nancy Hult Ganis, was a flight attendant for Pan Am for seven years.
Christina Ricci is slated to star on the show, which has been picked up for the 2011-2012 season.
Is ABC trying to fill the void left by "Mad Men", which won't return to the air until 2012?
Check out a clip of the new show below, complete with pastel uniforms, weight checks and mentions of stockings.
