BBC 2 have picked a new American show labelled as the new Mad Men. Pan Am is the latest new show from ABC.

Pan Am is following the trend for mid 20th century drama and set in the swinging 60's Pan Am is centred around the iconic Pan American World Airways. The drama focus on the pilots and cabin crew of the world famous airline.

In the 1960's, air travel represents the height of luxury and Pan Am is the biggest name in the business. The planes are 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.

Pan Am stars:

  • Christina Ricci as Maggie

    Maggie is a rebellious bohemian, who turns into a buttoned up professional for work so she can see the world. Ricci is undoubtedly the biggest name on the cast but will she outshine the rest?

  • Kelli Garner as Kate

  • Michael Mosley as Ted

  • Mike Vogel as Dean

    Dean is a cocky, charismatic and ambitious new pilot – the first of a new breed not trained in the war. On the sly against company policy, he's dating Bridget, a stunning beauty with a mysterious past. Vogel has been seen in films including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Grind, Poseidon, and Cloverfield.

  • Karine Vanasse as Colette

    Colette is the flirtatious member of the cabin crew.

  • Margot Robbie as Laura

Robbie is another Neighbours alumni getting her break in Hollywood following in the footsteps of: Alan Dale, Guy Pearce, Holly Valance, Jesse Spencer, and Nicky Whelan.
