Lily James & Sebastian Stan in New Hulu Series as Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee

LOS ANGELES – Lily James and Sebastian Stan star as Pamela Anderson and Greek-American Tommy Lee in an upcoming Hulu limited series titled Pam & Tommy, Deadline reported on May 7 as the first photos of the actors in character were released.

The eight-episode comedic series is written and executive produced by Rob Siegel and DV DeVincentis, and “tells the true story of the release of the first-ever viral video in history — the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee,” Deadline reported.

As Deadline’s Justin Kroll previously reported, “while the tape will play a major part in the series, the story will also focus on their relationship going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.”

“The leaked VHS tape turned into quite the legal dispute, with Anderson suing the video distribution company Internet Entertainment Group,” and “ultimately, the Lees entered into a confidential settlement deal with IEG,” Deadline reported, adding that “thereafter, the company began making the tape available to subscribers to its websites again, resulting in triple the normal traffic.”

The series also stars Seth Rogen as the man who stole the tape. Cast members include Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spenser Granese, and Mozhan Marnò, Deadline reported.
