The shooting for the miniseries for the Hulu platform has finished Pam & Tommy, about the relationship between Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee, as well as the sex tape they shot in the 90s during their honeymoon. The production, consisting of eight episodes, will show the media scandal at that time and the struggle of the title couple with the company that wanted to distribute their recording.
The title roles are played by Lily James (Cinderella, Baby Driver) and Sebastian Stan, well known as Bucky from the Marvel cinematic universe. A few weeks ago, the first official promotional photos showing the title characters hit the web and caused quite a stir on the web – Internet users commented on the great make-up with delight. Barry Lee Moe, a stylist working on the production set, recently commented on this topic. In an interview with “Variety”Confirmed that getting James ready for shooting took three to five hours each day, with 25 wigs prepared for the rest of the show’s stars; none were worn except by Stan, who had grown his own hair. They only required dyeing.
The series is directed by Craig Gillespie (I’m the best. Me, Tonya, Cruella), and the script was written by Robert Siegel, author of, among others A wrestler. Gillespie in an interview with Collider this year said that Pam & Tommy is in some ways similar to I. Tonya. The director mentioned that Anderson and Lee had fallen victim to the media, which as a result had harmed their lives and careers, and people don’t know the full story. Gillespie called Siegel’s script amazing and an emotional bond with Pamela Anderson.
In the cast Pam & Tommy there are also Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Mozhan Marno, Gail Chwatsky and Spenser Granese among others. Rogen plays the man who owns the sex tape and shared it. The actor is also the producer of the series. Anderson and Lee were not involved in the development of the production.
The release date has not yet been determined, although, according to Moe, the production will debut in early 2022.
