Pam & Tommy is coming to the small screen next year but fans got a sneak peek of it early.

The original Hulu series is slated to premiere on February 2, 2022. It will star Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee and Lily James as Pamela Anderson. The show will follow the famous couple who married just after meeting 96 hours earlier.

Other actors included in the series are Seth Rogen as Rand Gauthier and Nick Offerman as Uncle Miltie. Taylor Schilling also joins the cast as Erica Gauthier, Mike Seely as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, and a recurring role with Andrew Dice Clay. Additionally, the show is directed by Craig Gillespie and written by Rob Siegel.

Earlier this year, James and Stan were photographed dressed up as the two Hollywood icons. The uncanny resemblances made people intrigued and confused as to how much they look like their characters.

The series will feature eight episodes detailing their sex tape scandal and rockstar lives. The trailer also teases that the series will touch on the moment that their sex tape was stolen out of their safe. Lee’s former electrician Rand Gauthier wanted to get back at him for firing him. Lee pointed a gun at him. Despite the circumstances, there was no court case or crime filed officially.

Everything We Know About ‘Pam & Tommy’

The series was announced back in 2018. Rogen and Evan Goldberg developed the project through their Point Grey Pictures. James Franco was originally attached to the series to star as Lee and work behind the scenes. In December 2020, it was revealed that he left the project. Days later, Hulu picked up the show and ordered eight episodes.

The team began filming in Los Angeles on April 5, 2021, and concluded on July 30, 2021.

In real life, Pam and Tommy wed in 1995. They welcomed two sons together, Brandon and Dylan. The former couple divorced in 1998. Both parties declined to be involved with this series.

A source close to Anderson spoke to The Sun about how she really feels about Pam & Tommy.

“Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never,” the insider said. “She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knockoff. The whole thing is a joke to them.”

Furthermore, the source added that Anderson isn’t a fan of what they did to her character.

“Pamela finds it amusing that this girl is getting so much attention for playing her,” the source added. “Lily isn’t a match for Pamela, doesn’t even come close, nor does Sebastian Stan do justice to Tommy.”

Meanwhile, Anderson is allegedly hurt that they would include the sex tape scandal which caused her emotional trauma.

“That whole thing was extremely traumatic for Pamela, it was one of the most difficult experiences of her life,” they also explained. “To have it dredged up for a TV show is pathetic. She won’t want to be reminded about it.”
