ABC’s November 18 order of one additional episode to freshman drama Pan Am stands. Back then, the network opted for a one-episode back order to the 1960s drama, bringing the first-season run of Pan Am to 14 episodes, but producer Sony Pictures TV didn’t accept the offer right away. The negotiations between the sides stretched into the holiday weekend and were still in full force yesterday. To help shore up a full-season order, Sony added Steven Maeda as showrunner a month ago. In the end, the studio took ABC’s original offer and will produce one extra episode. This morning, one of the show’s stars, Karine Vanasse, tweeted that the cast and crew have “received THE call” and that “Pan Am is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas.” As ABC stated back on November 18, it will make final decision on the fate of the show beyond its first season in May. On ABC’s midseason schedule, Pan Am is being replaced by new dramedy GCB on Sundays 10 PM beginning in March.
