The ABC network has denied the rumours that new series Pan Am has been axed.

Actress Karine Vanasse tweeted earlier today that the show would only return for one more episode after Christmas.

“Well, we received THE call, #PanAm is only coming back for one more episode after Christmas. But up to the end, we’ll give it our all ! (sic),” she wrote. 

But ABC has been quick to dispel the claim, saying: “Nothing has changed. We are not cancelling Pan Am.

“We are still in production and will continue to be in production finishing the original 13 episodes plus one more additional one. 

“We have one more original episode this coming week… and then will return in January with the new episodes, airing all of them. Pan Am is still in contention for next season. We won’t know about that until our upfront announcement in May.”

Two Halifax entrepreneurs are hoping to raise money for charity by tapping into the popularity of the Trailer Park Boys TV series and the Hobo With A Shotgun feature film.

Bob Chiasson and Scott Owen have both worked in film and TV for more than 20 years, Chiasson as a props master and Owen as an actor. Although their areas of expertise within the industry may differ, they both share a passion for collectables. This past October the two movie industry veterans turned their knack for finding unique items into a business venture called the Monkeys Paw Curio Shop.

Their store is located in the Plan B Merchants Co-op in the North End of Halifax and is jammed with an eclectic mix of antique and vintage items, many of which have been used in film and TV productions. With the holiday season approaching, Chiasson and Owen wanted to raise money for a local charity so they turned to the local film  and TV production community.

“Christmas Daddies helps under-privileged children in Atlantic Canada so selling items that were used in local productions was a perfect way for us to give back to the community” says Owen. “If we can help make Christmas more memorable for even one child, we’ll consider this initiative a success.”

The items being offered include screen used props from the Trailer Park Boys TV series and a Santa suit donated by actor John Dunsworth (aka Mr. Lahey) which was featured in both Hobo With A Shotgun and Trailer Park Boys as well as numerous other film and TV productions.

Chiasson has sold numerous movie props on eBay so he’s optimistic that these items will be very popular. “I think that offering one-of-a-kind props from these locally produced shows to fans across the country is a great way to help out” said Chiasson. “This is one situation where it’s really a win-win-win situation for the charity, for us, and for the auction winners.”

To publicize the auction, Chiasson and Owen enlisted the help of Halifax-based Tell Tale Productions and RPM Productions to produce a video featuring John Dunsworth and Santa. The video can be seen on You Tube at: www.youtube.com/user/telltaleinc

The auction runs for one week and will end on Sunday December 4th at 3 PM AST. The items can be viewed on eBay at: http://myworld.ebay.com/planbhfx/?_trksid=p4340.l2559
