Pam and Tommy Plot
The main storyline of the series is the sex scandal and the aftermath of it. The tape had a great effect on Pamela’s mental health which took a toll on their relationship. Basically, the series focuses on making people realize how such an event can ruin a life. Craig Gillespie, the series director, expressed his views on this saying,
“In a way, it, again makes us complicit, as a society and with the consumption of the media, that we do this without any consideration for the humans involved in it. It does that same interesting thing, where we go in being complicit because we wanna see it and relive this, and then halfway through it, we realize that we’re the problem, as an audience. You really get to land on an emotional human level with Pam, which is what they did so beautifully with the scripts.”
However, it will also feature lots of hilarious situations and the love between Pamela and Tommy. All in all, it will be a diverse series that focuses on a variety of topics.
The official plot synopsis reads,
“A love story, crime caper and cautionary tale rolled into one, the eight-part original limited series explores the intersection of privacy, technology, and celebrity, tracing the origins of our current Reality TV Era to a stolen tape seen by millions but meant to have an audience of just two.”
