Many people know who Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and Motley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee are, but they might not know the story behind the infamous sex tape that Anderson and Lee made while on their honeymoon and which was later leaked to the public.
So, this is where Pam and Tommy come in. This Hulu miniseries, which was made by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, is about what happens to the couple’s marriage after the sex tape comes out. The miniseries will be run by Robert Siegel, who wrote the 2008 sports drama The Wrestler. Craig Gillespie, who made the movies I, Tonya and Cruella, will direct the first three episodes and be an executive producer on the show.

When Will Pam & Tommy Be Released?
On February 2, 2022, the first three episodes of Pam & Tommy will be available on Hulu. Then, for the next five weeks, a new episode of the show will start airing every week.
Who Is in the Pam & Tommy Cast?
In December 2020, it was announced that Lily James and Sebastian Stan would play the leads. Stan had already worked with Gillespie on me, Tonya. James Franco was going to direct the miniseries and play Lee, but he dropped out because of all the allegations of s*** misconduct against him.
Rand Gauthier, the electrician who stole Anderson and Lee’s s** tape, was also played by Rogen. Four months later, Nick Offerman was chosen to play Milton Ingley, who would help Gauthier get the tape out to people. The series will also have Taylor Schilling and Andrew Dice Clay.
After filming started the next month, Hulu shocked everyone with photos of the two main characters that no one could recognize. James is seen wearing an all-leather outfit and Anderson’s signature feathery blonde hair and heavy eyeshadow from the 1990s.
Stan is just as hard to recognize when he has tattoos and wears nipple rings. Rogen also shared a picture of himself with a mullet and ragged jean shorts, which are what his character wears. Rogen tweeted, “My co-stars Sebastian and Lily are a lot cooler than I am.
The two main actors kept putting out behind-the-scenes photos and videos of themselves as their characters. For example, Stan played drums with a drumstick, and James wore a curly hairstyle and a metallic cowl-neck top like Anderson did at the 2002 American Music Awards.

What Will Pam & Tommy Be About?
Many people may already know about this scandal, but Gillespie told Collider that the show is about how viewers make these kinds of stories possible: So Pam & Tommy will probably have a lot of funny moments, but it will also give people something to think about.
If you still want to know more about the story, there is also an official plot summary: Pam & Tommy” is based on the unbelievable true story of the s** tape with Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan). It is set in the early days of the Internet when it was like the Wild West.
The video was stolen from the couple’s home by a disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen). When it hit the Web in 1997, it went from being a bootleg VHS curiosity to a full-blown global sensation. The eight-part original limited series is a love story, a crime thriller, and a warning story all in one.
It looks at the intersection of privacy, technology, and celebrity, tracing the roots of our current Reality TV Era to a stolen tape that was seen by millions but was only meant for two people.”
Are Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee Involved with Pam & Tommy?
Pam & Tommy is not being made with the help of Pamela Anderson or Tommy Lee. Anderson hasn’t said anything about the miniseries yet, but her close friend Courtney Love criticized it in a now-deleted Facebook post, saying that it’s giving Anderson “complex trauma.
James told Porter that she tried to get in touch with Anderson but that they never talked. Lee, on the other hand, talked about how excited he is about the miniseries at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards in September.
I know that Sebastian is trying to trick me. From what he’s told me, it sounds like a really lovely story “Lee said to ET. “People might think it’s about one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how crazy things were back then. There are new rules now.”
