Sources say that the pilot is filming at Gold Coast Studios in Bethpage. Ricci was also seen on set in New York City.
Pan Am is set in the 1960s and is about the pilots and flight attendants of the former airline. Ricci plays the part of Maggie, a stewardess who is a model employee and also a wild child living in Greenwich Village. Ricci’s co-starts are Scrub‘s Michael Mosley, who will play a pilot on the show, and actress Margot Robbie as another stewardess.
Former ER executive producer and writer Jack Orman wrote the pilot and will executive-produce. Nancy Hult Ganis, a former ER writer and former Pan Am flight attendent, is also among the executive producers. The West Wing‘s Thomas Schlamme is directing it.
