Crews recently filmed scenes for the TV pilot "Pan Am" at La Selva, the Upper Brookville estate on the market for $9.999 million.

A permit filed by Woodridge Productions Inc. indicated that the shoot took place sometime between March 18 and 23 at the 40-room Italian Renaissance home, according to the Village of Upper Brookville.

Annabelle Wallis, Karine Vanasse, Will Chase, Jonah Lotan and other actors in the 1960s-period drama about the airline industry were there, says local historian and real estate agent Paul Mateyunas, who was involved in the shoot. Christina Ricci, the star of the show, was not in the scene, he says.

“They shot La Selva as an Italian hotel because they thought it was so authentic,” Mateyunas says.

Am oval bedroom upstairs also stood in for a London apartment, he says.

Other Long Island locations include Republic Airport and Roslyn Village, he says.

Crews brought furniture to the empty house.

The 24.3-acre property belongs to Sylvia Kumar, wife of imprisoned former Computer Associates chief Sanjay Kumar. It is listed with Margaret Mateyaschuk and Margaret Trautmann of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty.

The home had been listed for $17 million when it first came on the market in 2007.
