Here’s everything we know about Lily James’ highly anticipated new Disney+ series, Pam & Tommy, including a brand new trailer and release date.
Earlier this year, when Hulu released those first-look photos from the upcoming limited series Pam & Tommy, the internet went predictably wild. Why, you ask? Well, because Lily James is practically unrecognisable thanks to her incredible transformation into Pamela Anderson.
The Pursuit Of Love actor stars as Anderson in the eight-part series, based on the true story of the first-ever viral video in history — the infamous leaked sex tape of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan).
And now, finally, the official trailer has landed. Take a look:
Alongside the trailer, Hulu have also released several new images, which give a further glimpse at James’ major character transformation.
In one image, Anderson can be seen reading from her own book at a bookshop, while another shows her in the iconic red Baywatch swimsuit.
A third shows Anderson and Tommy Lee surrounded by a paparazzi scrum.
Last year, following all the buzz and excitement around James’ new look, which saw her don a voluminous bleached blonde wig and array of tight-fitting outfits, we were gifted a teaser trailer and official release date for the exciting series.
That’s right folks, the first three episodes of Pam & Tommy will be available to stream on 2 February 2022, exclusively on Disney+ in the UK.
What is the plot of Pam & Tommy?
As the tagline reads: “Based on the true f**king scandal,” Pam & Tommy tells the story of the leaked sex tape scandal featuring Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee that rocked the tabloids in the 1990s.
The trailer, which oozes rock’n’roll wildness, features a series of looks at James’ Anderson and Stan’s Lee, showing snapshots of their passionate and turbulent marriage. The footage also introduces Seth Rogen as Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and distributed the sex tape.
“Not a big deal to me? I’m on that tape, same as you,” Lee says at one point in the trailer, discussing the urgency of retrieving the tape with his wife. “No, not like me you’re not,” Anderson replies.
Watch the trailer for Pam & Tommy below:
As reported in Deadline back in May, “The tape will play a major part in the series, [but] the story will also focus on their relationship, going back to their whirlwind romance that started with them marrying after only knowing each other for 96 hours in 1995.”
The series also stars Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò.
When will Pam & Tommy be available to watch?
While the series definitely looks to be worth the wait, the good news is that we don’t have too much longer to go. The limited series will premiere exclusively on Disney Plus, with the first three episodes available to stream on 2 February 2022.
