More pilot orders from ABC: ‘Lost and Found,’ ‘Pan Am’

ABC kept the Warner Brothers multicam bandwagon rolling today. Shortly after ordering ‘Work It’ to pilot, the Alphabet net confirmed it had given the go-ahead on comedy pilot “Lost and Found,” along with drama pilot “Pan Am.”

“Lost and Found” comes from actress Marisa Coughlan and centers around a New York bartender and party girl who has her life upended when the 18-year-old son she gave up for adoption (and who happens to be conservative – Alex P. Keaton, anyone?) finds his way into her life.

“Pan Am,” set in the 1960s in the glamour (if more sexist) era of airline travel, had already received a pilot commitment, so this just makes things official. Series comes from Sony Pictures TV, with Jack Orman writing and Thomas Schlamme directing. Both will exec produce along with Nancy Ganis, whose husband Sid will co-exec produce.
