Air America Trivia
There were four episodes of the Air America TV show that were produced but were not broadcast. Their titles were: "Betrayal", "Safe Passage", "The Cure", and "The Miracle".
Lorenzo Lamas is an international TV and movie star with an impressively long list of roles! His other best known TV series include "Falcon Crest", "Renegade", "The Immortal", and "The Bold and the Beautiful".
Lorenzo was born to highly successful show business parents. His father was "Fernando Lamas", one of MGM Studios headline actors during the 1940s through the 1960s and his mother was Arlene Dahl who never achieved the same level of success but nevertheless starred in numerous MGM films. Arlene also appeared as a guest star on Air America in episode #16, "Eye of the Storm" as her final role! A few years earlier she also appeared on two episodes of "Renegade".
While the titles are identical, this series has no connection to the 1990 movie starring Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr.
Rio and Wiley often found themselves in difficult and dangerous situations caused by their boss, Edward Furman who cared about little more than enriching himself.
The agents operated out of the ficticious community of Costa Perdida that was overwhelmed by drug kingpins and paramilitary organizations.
Shauna Sand who played Dominique on Air America was married to Lorenzo Lamas at the time. She also had guest-starred on five episodes of "Renegade".
