Air America

Show Summary

This syndicated series is based loosely on the Mel Gibson-Robert Downey Jr. film of the same name. It lasted one season but only 22 episodes were aired in America. Four more episodes were produced and have been aired overseas. The plot deals with former CIA agent Rio Arnett (played by Lorenzo Lamas), who is the station chief and undercover agent who runs Air America, a commercial enterprise that flies everything from passengers and cargo to attack helicopters on covert missions. Rio operates along with his buddy and colleague Wiley Ferrell (played by Scott Plank) - posing as ordinary pilots - from the beautiful Central American country of Buenaventura. During the course of their many missions, Rio and Wiley often cross paths with the beautiful Alison Stratton (played by Diana Barton), who runs the Parador Hotel. Alison generally dislike both of them and hates that their work often cause damage to her hotel. Yet, she finds herself unwillingly attracted to Rio. Recurring characters include Rio's sympathetic superior Willard Jenner (played by Arthur Roberts) and their corrupt and villainous colleagues Edward Furman (played by Gary Wood) and Henry Stanley (played by Gary Hudson). Other, minor characters are: Rio's mysterious and presumed-dead father Frank Arnett (played by John Bennett Perry), mechanic Pablo Lee (played by Gilbert Montoya), sexy hotel waitress Dominique (played by Shauna Sand, Lorenzo Lamas' wife at the time), and mysterious medicine woman Alma (played by Karmin Murcelo).moreless
