The comedy series picks up the true story behind the release of the very first viral video in history – the Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee sex tape. Along with Stan and James, the series also stars Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese and Mozhan Marnò. Rogen will play Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and sold the tape.

“Pam and Tommy” was ordered to do the show in December 2020. Neither Anderson nor Lee are involved in the show. It is written and produced by Robert Siegel and DV DeVincentis, who serve as co-showrunners. Rogen will also be executive producer with Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Alex McAtee for Point Gray. Dave Franco will be executive producer with Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and Ali Krug, executive producer for Annapurna. Chip Vucelich, Dylan Sellers and Sarah Gubbins will also be executive producers. Craig Gillespie will be the director and executive producer.
This isn’t the only Hulu series currently underway about a real person that that person isn’t involved in. Hulu is currently preparing a series on infamous boxing legend Mike Tyson, with Tyson calling the series “inappropriate” and “deaf to tone.”
James is no stranger to television, having appeared on shows such as “Downton Abbey” and the 2016 miniseries adaptation of “War & Peace”. She is best known for her film work. Her main roles include hits like “Cinderella”, “Baby Driver”, “Darkest Hour” and “Mamma Mia!” Here we go again. “
Stan most recently appeared in the Disney Plus series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, reprising his role from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His other TV credits include “Kings” and “Once Upon a Time”. He has appeared in several films within the MCU at this point, including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”, “Captain America: Civil War” and “Avengers: Infinity War”. The role will also reunite Stan and Gillespie, who directed it in Tonya Harding’s critically acclaimed biopic “I, Tonya.” His other recent film roles include “The Devil All The Time” and “Destroyer”.
