Pam and Tommy inspired from when the first pictures of Lily James as Pamela Anderson went viral on the internet, no one could believe their eyes – the Pursuit of Love star bears little resemblance to a blonde model, but the make-up department really turned the British rose into a 1990s Baywatch icon at the height of her fame.
One of the most famous couples of the decade, Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee were tabloid mainstays for their entire three-year marriage, which suffered from multiple romance scandals, sex tapes, and prisons.

This eight-part Hulu drama will retell the couple’s life in the mid-1990s, exploring the theft and distribution of Pam & Tommy’s sex tapes – the first viral video – and the impact it had on their marriage.
The series will follow the couple from their 1995 marriage (after knowing each other for a week) through their honeymoon and final video release. The series will air in the UK on Disney Plus as part of the Star Streamer content hub.
judging by the new Pam & Tommy trailer, which not only gives fans a glimpse of Lily James in her transforming outfit and make-up as Anderson but also on the drama that followed after the sex tape was published, viewers are sure to love it. they are in for a treat (read more in the first and second trailers below).
