Goran Visnjic (“ER”) will check into ABC’s highly anticipated new drama series, “Pan Am,” for a four-episode arc. The first of his four episodes begins filming September 7 and will air later this fall. “Pan Am” premieres Sunday, September 25 at 10:01 pm ET on the ABC Television Network.
Visnjic will play a Yugoslavian diplomat torn politically between his communist background and the freedom and opportunities he’s afforded in the west. He’ll face a wrenching emotional dilemma when he finds himself attracted to Kate and their romance ends up being more complicated than either ever imagined.
Visnjic will also be seen this December as Dragan Armansky in the Sony feature film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Passion, adventure and espionage… They do it all – and they do it at 30,000 feet. The style of the 1960s, the energy and excitement of the Jet Age and a drama full of sexy entanglements deliciously mesh in a thrilling and highly original new series. “Pan Am” stars Christina Ricci (“Penelope”) as Maggie, Margot Robbie (“Neighbours”) as Laura, Michael Mosley (“Justified”) as Ted, Karine Vanasse (“Polytechnique”) as Colette, Mike Vogel (“The Help,” “Blue Valentine”) as Dean and Kelli Garner (“Going the Distance”) as Kate.
Series creator Jack Orman (“ER,” “Men of a Certain Age,”), Thomas Schlamme (“The West Wing,” “Parenthood,” “Mr. Sunshine”) and Nancy Hult Ganis (“Akeelah and the Bee”) are executive producers. Orman also wrote the pilot, with Schlamme directing. “Pan Am” is produced by Jack Orman Productions, Out of the Blue Entertainment and Shoe Money Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television.
