ProSiebenSat.1 latest broadcaster to board series
BERLIN — ProSiebenSat.1 has boarded “Pan Am” for Germany.The Munich-based broadcasting group, which announced the acquisition at the Mipcom TV mart in Cannes, has become the latest taker for ABC’s 1960s-jet-set drama, which stars Christina Ricci, Margot Robbie, Michael Mosley and Mike Vogel. ProSiebenSat.1 has yet to announce which of the group’s channels will carry the series or when it will air in Germany. The series has already sold in most major markets, including the U.K. (BBC), France (TF1), Spain (Canal Plus), Canada (CTV), Japan (Imagica BS) and Australia (Nine Network). “Pan Am” got off to a strong start, bowing to some 11 million viewers and a 3.1 share, but lost altitude with its second episode, descending 19% from its premiere score but still delivering OK numbers. “Pan Am” is produced by Jack Orman Productions, Out of the Blue Entertainment and Shoe Money Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television.
