Well, it wasn't exactly THE call: "Pan Am" will only shoot 14 episodes this season, including the 13 full episodes ABC originally ordered. It also ordered five additional scripts, and will shoot and air one of them, a person at ABC said. The person said it is unlikely to shoot the four remaining scripts this season.
But ABC and Sony Pictures Television, the studio that produces the show, say it is not canceled. A person at Sony says that the studio and network are negotiating over how many more episodes the series will shoot this season, and that ABC will decide later whether it will return for a second season, but that it remains very much in contention.
