Bringing back 'Pan Am'

 Permanent link

Pan Am may be making a comeback: As the setting for a fictionalized TV show.

CNN reports that a pilot (no pun intended) has been ordered by ABC for a drama series called "Pan Am." The show is apparently based on the real-life experiences of Nancy Hult Ganis, a former Pan Am flight attendant and the executive producer of the show.

The CNN report said that "Pan Am," which takes place during the airline's 1960s heyday, is already drawing parallels to the current yardstick of midcentury culture -- that is, AMC's "Mad Men" -- but Ganis called her show "the anti-'Mad Men."

What do you think? Is the mystique of Pan Am and the glories of midcentury airline travel enough of a draw to get you to tune in?
