The first trailer for the Hulu series ‘Pam & Tommy’ starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan has dropped.
‘Mamma Mia!’ star James and ‘Falcon And The Winter Soldier’ star Stan play ‘Baywatch’ bombshell Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee respectively in the comedy drama, which depicts the scandal surrounding the former couple’s sex tape.
The trailer shows Seth Rogen star as electrician and former porn actor Rand Gauthier, who shows porn impresario ‘Uncle Miltie’ (played by Nick Offerman) the home video of Anderson and Lee that he stole from Lee’s home.
The pair then decide to release the tape, which features footage of the famous couple having sex.
‘Pam & Tommy’ will follow the couple’s relationship from their beach wedding just four days after meeting each other, to the legal battles that ensued when their sex tape was uploaded to the internet in 1995.
After suing the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group, Anderson and Lee entered a confidential settlement agreement with the company which allowed the tape to be made available on its sites again.
The mini-series will premiere on February 2, 2022 on Hulu. It also stars ‘Orange Is The New Black’ actor Taylor Schilling as Gauthier’s wife.
‘Pam & Tommy’ is helmed by ‘I, Tonya’ director Craig Gillsepie, written by Rob Siegel, and developed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Pictures from the set of ‘Pam & Tommy’ earlier this year saw calls on social media for the hair and make-up team to sweep the Emmys next year due to James’s impressive transformation into 1990s pin-up Anderson.
Anderson has not publicly commented on the show, but her friend Courtney Love wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post that the series was causing the actress “complex trauma”.
Lee, however, said that the story was “actually cool”, telling Entertainment Tonight: “What actually happened wasn’t, but [Stan] tells me it’s pretty wild. I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a cool story and people need to know. It’s cool. I’m stoked.”
The musician added: “I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, really beautiful story. I think a lot of people would think it’s one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how things got crazy then. There’s different laws now.”
Anderson and Lee divorced in 1998 after three years of marriage and share two sons together.
