MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The cast and crew of the new ABC show "Pan Am" are spending the day at Mamaroneck's Hampshire Country Club filming the first episode of the season.
The Sony Pictures drama, which spotlights the glamor of the airline industry in the 1960s, filmed its pilot one year ago, and will continue to film during the course of the season, which takes off on ABC Sept. 25. The on-set crew of around 120 people, including stars Christina Ricci, Kelli Garner and Kerine Vanasse, are on a one-day shoot at Hampshire Country Club, location manager Jordan Bowes said.
The scene is set in Ragoon, India during a layover, where the stewardesses take the new girl to a pool to show her some rest and relaxation, said Caroline Mendoza, director of media and talent relations for Sony Pictures. Hampshire Country Club, which has been host to other shows like "Royal Pains" on the USA Network, was selected because its pool can present as if it were from the 1960s.
The Sony Pictures production mostly films in their Brooklyn studio because of the special effects involved with the show.
The crew, which also has trucks stationed in Harbor Island, arrived at Hampshire Country Club at 7 a.m. Monday morning to set-up for filming Tuesday. After filming wraps, they will break down the set Wednesday.
