With 2022 in full swing, all eyes are now on the Hulu (opens in new tab)/Disney+ (opens in new tab) series Pam & Tommy which focuses on the whirlwind romance between Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.

The film stars Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Lee and is based around their infamous VHS sex tape that was stolen from the couple’s home in the mid-90s which was soon leaked around the world causing an international sensation.

The eight-part series premiered on February 2, with three episodes immediately available on the Star channel on Disney+ and on Hulu in the US. A new episode will then be available every Monday.

Pam & Tommy is described as a “love story, crime caper and cautionary tale rolled into one” and will explore “the intersection of privacy, technology and celebrity, tracing the origins of our current reality TV era to a stolen tape seen by millions but meant to have an audience of just two.”

Along with James and Stan, the cast also includes Seth Rogan, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Mike Seely and Andrew Dice Clay.

Speaking about Pam & Tommy last year, Lee told Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab): "I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, it’s a 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. The story’s actually cool. What actually happened wasn’t, but he tells me it’s pretty wild. I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a cool story and people need to know. I’m stoked.”
