Sebastian Stan, Lily James to Star in Tommy Lee-Pamela Anderson Series at Hulu
Hulu has landed a limited series about the relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, and the scandal surrounding their notorious sex tape.
Lily James (Netflix's Rebecca, the 2015 Cinderella) and Sebastian Stan (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) will play Anderson in Lee in the eight-episode series, currently titled Pam & Tommy. Seth Rogen will also star, playing the man who stole the tape and made it public. He's also an executive producer.
The series will track the relationship between then Baywatch star Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Lee, who married less than a week after they met in 1995. A tape they made having sex during their honeymoon was stolen from their home and distributed online. Anderson and Lee sued the distributor, Internet Entertainment Group, and eventually reached a settlement under which the tape became public again.
The couple had two children together before divorcing in 1998; during the marriage, Lee pleaded no contest to spousal battery against Anderson and was sentenced to six months in jail.
Anderson and Lee are not involved in the project, which comes from Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Point Grey Pictures and Annapurna Television. Rob Siegel will write the project, and Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya; Disney+'s Cruella) is set to direct.
Rogen and Goldberg executive produce with Dylan Sellers via Limelight, Dave Franco, and Annapurna's Sue Naegle and Megan Ellison.
Rogen is repped by Principal Entertainment LA and UTA, which also reps Point Grey. James is repped by Tavistock Wood Management and UTA; Stan by CAA and Brookside Artist Management; and Gillespie by UTA and Management 360.
