Exclusive: It’s been three months since ABC aired the last episode of Pan Am and almost two weeks since the network officially canceled the freshman series. But the 1960s drama is not dead, at least not yet. As I hinted in my story from two weeks ago, Pan Am producer Sony Pictures TV has been exploring a play on cable or other platforms.

Picking up canceled broadcast series, NBC’s Friday Night Lights and FX’s Damages, was how DirecTV entered the original series arena. Netflix is doing it too with a new season of Arrested Development.
