First look: Lily James, Sebastian Stan, Seth Rogen in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy
Staff Reporter | On 08, May 2021
Lily James, Sebastian Stan and Seth Rogen will star in Pam & Tommy, a new Hulu series based on the scandal surrounding the sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee – and new images posted on Twitter by Seth Rogen give us a first look at the star-studded cast in character.
Written and executive produced by Rob Siegel and DV DeVincentis, the eight-episode comedy stars Lily James as Pamela Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee. Seth Rogen will play the man who stole the infamous tape, with the rest of the cast including Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò.
Anderson sued video distributor Internet Entertainment Group over the tape, before the Lees reached a settlement over the matter. The company then began making the tape available to subscribers again online. While the series will focus on the tape, it will also explore their relationship going back to their 1995 marriage after only 96 hours of knowing each other.
I, Tonya helmer Craig Gillespie is directing. There is no word yet on when the show will debut – or, indeed, where it will find a home in the UK, with previous Hulu series heading to STARZPLAY (High Fidelity, Harlots), Channel 4 (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Amazon Prime Video (The Path) in the past. However, with Disney+ Star now live in the UK, the odds on the show debuting on the adult-friend section of Disney’s streaming service are high. Watch this space for confirmation of a UK air date and broadcaster when we have it.
