'Pan Am': Show may move to Amazon

While "Pan Am" is now officially done at ABC, the show may take off again on the Internet. Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures TV, the studio behind the period drama, has spoken with Amazon about picking up the series for its slate of original programming. The publication also reiterates what they recently reported, that Sony continues to explore other avenues, including cable, to revive the show.While it never caught on in the U.S., "Pan Am" has done very well overseas. In fact, it recently won "Best Series" at the Rose d'Or TV awards, Europe's equivalent of the Emmys. And Sony would certainly like to capitalize on that interest. Amazon makes at least some sense because the site already offers episodes of the show's first season. That said, it doesn't exactly overlap with their previously-announced plans to focus on developing comedy and children's programming.If "Pan Am" sees a second life on the Internet, it wouldn't... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/pan-am-show-may-move-to-amazon.html

Could ‘Pan Am’ Take to the Air Again?

The period piece  Pan Am  debuted last fall on ABC and at that time it got off to a great start (ratings-wise), but as the weeks passed, it started to plummet, ending its season early in February. Two weeks ago the series was officially cancelled by the network; but it would seem that the 1960?s drama may not have taken to the air for the last time. According to a report at  Deadline , Sony Pictures TV (the producers of ‘Pan Am’) have been exploring shifting the series to cable or other platforms. It would seem Sony has been in conversations with the folks over at Amazon (who carry the show’s first season) about potentially picking up the show.

'Pan Am': Does the show have a cable future?

Could it be that the crew of "Pan Am" will fly again?Deadline is reporting that the period drama, which will more than likely not be renewed by ABC, may have a future on cable. The show, which stars Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie and Michael Mosley, is much more popular in Europe than it ever was in the U.S. It is this that may lead Sony TV, the program's producer, to look for alternate venues for the series.As a sign of further popularity overseas, on Thursday (May 10) "Pan Am" was named "Best Series" at the Rose d'Or TV awards, Europe's equivalent of the Emmys. It beat out British programs "Martina Cole's the Runaway" and "The Jury."So Zappers, would you be interested in seeing "Pan Am" return? Or should the show stay grounded?... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/pan-am-does-the-show-have-a-cable-future.html
